Observation of sheared individual structures in the micrometer range
Rheological measurements reveal information about macroscopic material properties, which are strongly dependent on the microstructure. In order to understand and customize the behaviour of investigated samples under flow conditions, it is necessary to pay special attention to the structural changes that occur on the microstructural level.
A suitable method for investigating morphology development in the micrometre size is microscopy. The Rheo-Microscope enables observation of individual structural elements in shear flow as well as simultaneous rheological analysis.
