General description

This module comprises two components. The first part is attendance at a symposium on a topic of industrial rheology. These are organised on a regular basis by the University of Wales Institute of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics. This will expose students to problems of current interest in industrial rheology. The second component is an intensive course of lectures on a subject in contemporary rheology such as micro-macro constitutive modeling, stochastic simulation and the modelling of branched polymers. These lectures will be given by an invited European authority on the subject.


This module will introduce students to problems of current interest to the industrial rheologist.
