Non-Newtonian Club

The Non-Newtonian Club (NNC) is an informal rheology discussion group which provides low-cost, half-day or one-day meetings with the aim of bringing together experienced and not-so-experienced rheologists from industry and academia. PhD students with an interest in rheology are particularly encouraged to attend, as it is you who are the future of our discipline.

Our last and very successful Non Newtonian Club (NNC) meeting was on Tuesday 19th April 2016 at Imperial College London. The theme was the general topic of ‘Rheometry’. The Non-Newtonian Club is an informal discussion group under the auspices of the BSR, which provides low-cost, informal one-day meetings to provide a forum for industrial and academic rheologists to meet together and to present work in progress. A good mix of speakers from industry and academia is the norm and also for research students working on industrially related projects to present their results. There was no charge for the meeting, as usual.

Prof Geoffrey Maitland (Imperial) presented an extend lecture on "The intriguing world of clay-inorganic nanoparticle suspensions: practical opportunities and theoretical challenges" after the BSR AGM.
