CSC Scientific, a manufacturer and distributer of quality assurance testing equipment, announces the addition of a rotational viscometer to their product line in a partnership with Fungilab, one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of quality control equipment for viscosity measurement. The Rotational Viscometer comes in four models and is capable of measuring a wide viscosity range of Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids. Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) October 11, 2013 CSC Scientific Company,...

The development of a new measurement technology under a research project funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the National Science Foundation is probing the structure of composite and biological materials. "Our results have provided some of the first microscopic insights into a sixty year old puzzle about the way polymeric networks react to repeated shear strains," said Dr. Daniel Blair, Assistant Professor, and principal investigator of the Soft Matter Group in the...

Hit it hard and it will fracture like a solid"¦ but tilt it slowly and it will flow like a fluid. This is the intriguing property of a type of "Ëœcomplex fluid' which has revealed "Ëœnew physics' in research by scientists at The University of Nottingham. The new findings will be highly useful to the manufacturing industry because the processing and dispensing of everyday products like toothpaste, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foodstuffs depends on an understanding...

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated a microminiaturized device that can make complex viscosity measurements"”critical data for a wide variety of fields dealing with things that have to flow"”on sample sizes as small as a few nanoliters. Currently a table-top prototype, the NIST rheometer could be a particularly valuable tool for biotechnologists studying minute quantities of complex materials that must function in confined...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
