Mezger Seminar — June 13-14, 2016

The 11th Annual Mezger Seminar will be the inaugural educational event at the Rheology Center of Excellence in Ashland, Virginia. 

This seminar is aimed at those in need of an introduction to the theoretical basis for applied rheological measurements.  Mr. Mezger is an engaging teacher who will ensure that by the end of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand basic rheology theory and speak its language
  • Design meaningful experiments to characterize your samples
  • Interpret rheological data

The two-day seminar includes both lecture and laboratory sessions to combine theory and hands-on into one practical seminar.

Attendees will receive the new book, Applied Rheology, written by Mr. Mezger.  A book signing will be held at the end of the first day of the seminar.

Target group: Scientists, engineers, chemists, laboratory technicians, and graduate students interested in learning the basics of rheology and how rheological measurements are used to solve material problems.

Costs: $425 (includes refreshments, lunches, course materials, and a copy of the new book Applied Rheology by Thomas Mezger)
