Rheology deals with the deformation and flow behavior of matter. It therefore includes sub-areas of elasticity theory, plasticity theory and fluid mechanics (non-Newtonian fluids). The students gain insights about the influence of process or processing parameters starting from the polymer data sheet (incl. the data contained in the CAMPUS database system) and the application of technical machines with regard to the realization of finished products.
