Overview of workshop sessions

Optimizing Material and Processes Through Rheological Measurements
Gain understanding of both theoretical and practical aspects of rheological measurements, including viscosity, yield stress, complex viscosity, and extensional viscosity, for a wide range of materials, including fluids, semi-solids as well as molten or solid polymers.

Utilizing Small Scale Processing in Formulation and R&D
This seminar provides an overview of batch mixing, compounding, and extrusion, in both principles and practical considerations, using a series of and real-world processes and examples from food, polymer, and pharmaceutical industries.

Scalable Extrusion Solutions---from Development to Production
How to use a systematic approach to scale up extrusion processes from R&D to production, using critical process parameters, including screw elements and barrel design, based on selected examples from the industry.

Gaining Molecular Level Analysis through Hyphenated Techniques
Investigating cutting edge hyphenation of rheology/extrusion with vibrational spectroscopy, including Rheometer---FTIR, Rheometer---Raman, and Hot Melt Extrusion---NIR, and their applications for providing real-time molecular insight to material properties and processes.
