Rheology and flow of multiphase geological materials (01/09/17 - 19/12/17)

The BSR Midwinter Meeting 2017 will be held in Bristol. The meeting will combine talks on all topics of interest to BSR members with specific talks aimed at encouraging interactions between Earth Scientists and the wider rheological community. Geological flows often involve multiphase suspensions. Examples include magmas, which are suspensions of bubbles and/or crystals in a liquid silicate melt, and granular media, consisting of particles suspended in water or air. The flow of these materials often presents a hazard, as in the case of lava flows, pyroclastic density currents, snow avalanches, and underwater turbidity currents. Analysis and modelling of such flows is challenging because the rheology of the materials involved is typically complex. This complexity arises partly because the volume fraction of the suspended phase is often in the intermediate to dense range. Moreover, in the case of magmas, the viscosity of the suspending liquid phase can change dynamically during flow, over many orders of magnitude. Quantifying the rheology of these materials is, therefore, both challenging and important. This meeting will focus on recent advances in our understanding of the rheology of multiphase mixtures with a particular focus on geological materials.

14th International Conference on Electrorheological Fluids and Magnetorheological Suspensions (11/07/14)

Field-responsive fluids and suspensions are a kind of smart materials which present the interesting characteristic that their properties can be reversibly controlled by the application of magnetic or electric fields. Magnetorheological (MR) suspensions, electrorheological (ER) fluids, and ferrofluids are classical examples of such materials. The development of these materials started in the forties of the XX century and has known a broad expansion in the last decades. Within this context the International Conferences on ER fluids and MR suspensions, which started roughly thirty years ago, have represented a platform of meeting, discussions and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge between researchers in these fields.

International Workshop on Numerical Methods in Non-Newtonian Flows 2010 (13/06/10 - 16/06/10)

The International Workshops on Numerical Methods in Non-Newtonian Flows have been held roughly biennially, alternating between North America and Europe since 1979. The next installment in this series of workshops will be held in Northampton, Massachusetts USA on June 13-16 2010, co-organized by Mike Graham of U. Wisconsin-Madison and Jonathan Rothstein of U. Mass-Amherst. The objective of IWNMNF-2010 is to bring together researchers at the forefront of computational and experimental non-Newtonian fluid mechanics and rheology to discuss challenges, recent progress, future directions and emerging applications.

Topics covered in recent workshops include of course numerical methods for solution of differential and integral constitutive models from continuum descriptions of flowing complex fluids as well as also mathematical analysis of models of flowing complex fluids and the phenomenological and statistical mechanical framework for describing them.

An important aspect of the workshops in recent years has been mesoscopic and multiscale simulation methods. Topics have included Brownian/Stokesian dynamics approaches for hydrodynamically interacting polymer molecules in solution, dissipative particle dynamics simulations, multiscale methods such as Brownian configuration fields and atomistic approaches to polymer dynamics using MC and NEMD simulations in generalized ensembles.

Finally, we emphasize that the workshop addresses not just numerical methods but also the natural phenomena and engineering processes whose prediction and understanding motivate those methods. Materials of interest have ranged from polymer solutions and melts to liquid crystals to suspensions of carbon nanotubes to micellar surfactant solutions to blood. Phenomena include turbulent drag reduction, flow instabilities and nonlinear dynamics, flows with complex geometries, multiphase flows, shear banding, extensional rheometry and many more. Despite the name of the workshop, presentations of experimental work are essential, as motivation and validation for the newest generations of methods.

Northampton is 1 1/2 hours west of Boston, MA and 45 minutes north of Hartford, CT. The Northampton area offers many appealing features, from a quaint downtown with clubs and restaurants, museums and shops, and theaters and spas to natural splendor with rivers and mountains and opportunities for biking and hiking. The area is home to five world-class universities including the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Amherst College, Mount Holyoke College, Hampshire College and Smith College. The workshop venue is the Hotel Northampton, built in 1927 and a member of Historic Hotels of America.

TOP — 4th International Conference on Times of Polymers-TOP and Composites (21/09/08 - 24/09/08)

TOP is an evolving, dynamic conference that embraces cutting edge research topics and emerging scientists. It was thought having as a primary objective the meeting of a number of scientists working within the area of timescales of polymers, conceived as the background driving force for the progress of knowledge in many field of Polymer Science. For this reason the TOP Conference had sessions on various topics including Viscoelasticity, Adhesion, Processing, Transport phenomena, Tissue Engineering, Fracture and Yielding, Sensors, Thin films, Cultural Heritage, Biopolymers, Durability of Polymers and Composites, Nano-Composites. In the last edition (held on June 2006) 150 delegates were registered at conference desk; the program consisted in a total of 70 oral presentations (including the plenary lecture and five invited lectures) plus 60 poster contributions. Such a good response together with the presence of many young scientists were taken as good arguments to consider the replica of the Conference.

Rheology Webseminar from Malvern Instruments (18/12/07)

RHEOLOGY FOCUS FORUM: "Time-Temperature Superposition in Rheology" - A Review Presented by Dr. Jai A. Pathak, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory

Ever since its discovery and critical study by some of the pioneers of polymer rheology and viscoelasticity (Leaderman, Tobolsky, Ferry, Plazek et al), time-temperature superposition (tTS) has proved to be a very useful tool to rheologists, enabling us to extend the time/frequency range of experimental data by amalgamating data at different temperatures to produce a single master curve that can often cover the glass transition, transition zone, rubbery plateau and terminal/flow regimes of linear viscoelasticity.

In this talk, we will review some of the classical data in the literature (from creep, oscillatory shear and stress relaxation measurements) on homopolymers. We will also point out how tTS fails for some polymers (eg polystyrene) in the glass transition zone of viscoelasticity. Furthermore, we will discuss the cautionary approach needed to assess the validity of tTS accurately for a system while avoiding common pitfalls and we will also cover the applicability of tTS to, multi-component systems (eg blends, block copolymers, soultions, etc.

FIT 2007: Franco-Israeli Trends in soft matter, biophysics and microfluidics (07/10/07 - 10/10/07)

After Haifa (1992), Saint-Malo (1996) and Tel-Aviv (2002), we are pleased to announce the 4th Franco-Israeli binational conference: "Franco-Israeli Trends in soft matter, biophysics and microfluidics" (FIT 2007), which will be held in Biarritz on the southwest coast of France from the 7th to the 10th of October, 2007.

Soft matter communities in France and Israel are very active and have developed strong ties over the years. The spirit of a recurring binational meeting has therefore been to create an opportunity for scientists from our countries to share their most recent findings with a view to promoting exchanges and collaborations. The success of the past joint conferences has indeed demonstrated the relevance of such an idea.

While Israeli and French researchers may feel especially concerned, this conference is of course open to all.

Euromech Colloquium 492: Shear-banding phenomena in entangled systems (03/09/07 - 05/09/07)

Many entangled systems, including micelle solutions and living polymers, commonly show flow instabilities and flow-induced transitions that result in spatially heterogeneous, shear banded states. The study of such fluids has mushroomed in recent years, and this meeting will provide an opportunity for the European shear-banding community to push the field forward.

Current issues in the study of these fluids may benefit from a wide discussion spanning theory, experiments and simulation. Our goal is to clarify all the different features currently observed in shear-banding systems, improve understanding of the microstructural processes at work and identify the future work needed.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Diffusive processes close to shear-band interfaces
  • Gradients in alignment vs. in concentration
  • Fluctuations and instabilities within shear flows
  • The influence of wall effects
  • How can we improve experiments and constitutive models?
This conference will be held at the Bloomsbury campus of University College London, UK

1st International Conference on Industrial Processes for Nano and Micro Products (03/04/07 - 04/04/07)

BHR Group is pleased to announce that the 1st International Conference on Industrial Processes for Nano and Micro Products will be held in London, from 3 - 4 April 2007. Offers of papers are invited until 12 January 2007.

Recent advances in the manufacturing, manipulation and characterisation of nanoscale particles and emulsions have already made it possible to use nanomaterials in numerous product formulations and the commercialisation of products with improved performance a reality. Rapid developments in the area have the potential for applications in a wide range of industrial sectors including electronics, coatings, wear resistance, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals. These developments have opened new avenues for further research in a multi-disciplinary area.

Conference on "Whither Rheology?" (02/04/07 - 04/04/07)


The conference will commence at 12 noon on Monday April 2nd and finish at lunchtime on Wednesday, April 4th, 2007. The theme of the Conference will be “Whither Rheology?” Each Plenary Lecture will outline the main thrusts and highlights in the field hitherto, followed by a discussion of where the field is heading (or ought to be heading) in the future. Distinguished rheologists who have already agreed to give plenary lectures include D V Boger (Melbourne, Australia), Igor Emri (Slovenia), A J Giacomin (Madison, USA), J C Hyun (Korea), D F James (Canada), T C B McLeish (Leeds), J Mewis (Leuven), J R A Pearson (Schlumberger, Cambridge),T N Phillips (Cardiff), R I Tanner (Sydney, Australia) and M H Wagner (Berlin). We shall attempt to cover a number of important areas of current Rheological research by inviting the plenary speakers to present 45 min. lectures on their particular expertise. This will be followed by supporting lectures on the same theme. In this connection, A Likhtman and R Graham (both from Leeds), D G Baird (Virginia, USA), S Nigen-Chaidron (Shell, France), M A M Alves (Portugal), F T Pinho (Portugal), A R Davies (Cardiff), H J Wilson (U C London), A Stickland (ICI) and R Buscall (Consultant) have already agreed to lecture.

Professor M R Mackley (Cambridge) will deliver his BSR Presidential address at the conference.


The meeting will be held at the Lake Vyrnwy Hotel near the village of Llanwddyn in Mid Wales. The hotel is situated in a 24,000 acre country estate with magnificent views overlooking the lake and the Berwyn mountains. It offers excellent accommodation with full conference facilities.


The total cost of the meeting (with meals and accommodation from Monday lunch to Wednesday breakfast) will be £380. Participants registering before 20 February 2007 will receive a £30 discount on their registration fee. Accompanying persons sharing a room with a participant will be charged £100.
