P. Lettinga (Soft Condensed Matter)
The lectures will deal with rheology of a range of complex fluids. In a first theoretical part, the concepts of strain, stress, and the material functions for linear and non-linear viscoelasticity as well as Non-Newtonian flow will be introduced. Subsequently, in a part focussing on rheometry, the methods to evaluate the material functions will be introduced. Some teasers about optical, microrheology and interfacial rheometry will be presented. Finally, microrheology, focussing on the link between the properties and structure, for some selected material classes.
