Research level rheometer with unmatched ease of use ✓ Modular rheometer - fully configurable for your sample measurement requirements ✓ Widest torque range of any rotational rheometer on the market more
What flows so tantalizingly can also be characterized by such demure variables as viscosity and yield point. This is done with the help of instruments such as shear, extension, rotation or oscillation rheometers, named according to the method employed or the intended purpose. Many of the more recent instruments are modular in construction, for example allowing the measurement system or the temperature control unit to be exchanged.
New method measures 3D polymer processing precisely
Recipes for three-dimensional (3D) printing, or additive manufacturing, of parts have required as much guesswork as science. Until now. Resins and other materials that react under light to form polymers, or long chains of molecules, are attractive for 3D printing of parts ranging from architectural more
Liquid cats, disgust for cheese and reversed genitalia
This year's ceremony of the Ig Nobel Prize awards again shows how precious some areas of research can be. We had insights into research, which is not common, applicable or believable. Despite earlier awards all winners received the prize personally or send video messages to claim their interest. Her more
In Flow State
Ever wonder why you have to shake your bottle of ketchup or mustard before pouring? Or why, to get out of quicksand, you must move slowly? Or why you can run on the surface of a suspension of cornstarch in water, but you’d sink if you tried to walk on it? The common feature of all these conundrums a more
