Rheology is the study of flow properties of fluids, non-Newtonian fluids specially. Rheology is principally concerned with extending continuum mechanics to characterize flow of materials that exhibits a combination of elastic, viscous and plastic behaviour by properly combining elasticity and (Newtonian) fluid mechanics. It is also concerned with establishing predictions for mechanical behaviour (on the continuum mechanical scale) based on the micro- or nanostructure of the material, e.g. the molecular size and architecture of polymers in solution or the particle size distribution in a solid suspension. Rheology unites the seemingly unrelated fields of plasticity and non-Newtonian fluid dynamics by recognizing that materials undergoing these types of deformation are unable to support a stress (particularly a shear stress, since it is easier to analyse shear deformation) in static equilibrium.
The vital aim of Rheology 2016 is to furnish a scope and opening for the delegates to come upon a single stage to meet, interact and exchange their views and ideas in various fields of Rheology.
