Anton Paar eAcademy: Basics of Viscoelasticity (Repeat Session 2)


Oscillatory tests have emerged as a tool to characterize structured fluids. In oscillatory tests aim is to understand the flow behavior of the material under low or high deformations to establish a material-structure-property correlation. Further, these tests are useful for quality control so as to determine the effect of rapid deformations on the end products and to correlate physical stability.


Target group:

Rheology beginners and those who want to refresh their knowledge

  • Basic rheometry terms and measurement variables
  • Oscillatory tests for viscoelastic materials and other supporting rheometry analysis
  • Basic test methods
  • Interpretation of measuring diagram
  • Supporting dynamic mechanical analysis via DMTA
