Benefits of Membership
The British Society of Rheology is a registered charity organisation dedicated to the wonderful science of Rheology, the study of deformation. Since its formation in the 1940s the society has promoted pure and applied rheology, and has a worldwide membership including many of the very top rheologists.
The Society arranges scientific meetings at which you can hear about the very latest research in this exciting scientific field, and take the opportunity to network with presenters and other members. The Society also organises an informal Non-Newtonian Club at which rheological questions of industrial interest are promoted.
A further benefit of membership is the BSR Bulletin, a publication featuring news and reports from recent conferences worldwide, updates about the Society, as well as industrial and education news. Membership also allows full access to our library of rheology publications, including an historical record of rheological abstracts and reviews and the back catalogue of Bulletins.
Students who join the BSR are invited to apply for travel grants to help cover the costs of attending a rheologically based conference or meeting anywhere in the world. The Society also holds a yearly competition for the best PhD thesis in rheology, awarding the Vernon Harrison Prize, and the Annual Award is presented to a distinguished rheologist.
So it you are interested in the field of rheology, the British Society provides a valuable network of experts and the means to gain the knowledge you need.
