Have you ever had a question about measuring the rheological properties of thermosets?
Didn’t know what is the right experimental approach to get the right rheological information?
Need to measure the viscosity-shear rate for an uncured thermoset formulation?
Had a question on how does the rheology relate to the curing process?
Wondered how the viscosity profile impacts the composite fabrication process?
Would like to see a “real life” example in a case study on the lamination of a thermoset composite?
The Rheology of Thermosets has been significantly updated and expanded to cover:
What is rheology and how it relates to thermosets
How curing chemistry impacts the rheology and flow during processing, that is the chemorheology of thermosets
Rheological methods used for thermosets; controlled stress and controlled strain measurments
Rheological measurements on uncured formulations; viscosity-shear rate, shear thinning, thixotropy
How to measure the Isothermal rheology during curing
Non-isothermal rheology during curing
A comprehensive case-study demonstrating some of the key concepts of rheology during thermoset processing
