In this TA Webinar, Professor Nand Kishore discusses how to best discover and interpret protein folding, ligand binding, aggregation and molecular partitioning in self assemblies.
Tribology complements rheology, providing information on solid-solid interactions that adds insight to the bulk fluid measurements of rheology. Tribology is especially concerned with quantifying the coefficient of friction as a function of sliding speed and load force, under dry or lubricated conditions. This provides useful information about lubrication, wear, tactility, and mouthfeel.
The Tribo-rheometry Accessory capitalizes on the exceptional control and measurement of angular velocity, normal force, torque, and temperature of the ARES-G2 and Discovery Hybrid Rheometers (DHR). The system measures Stribeck curves, static friction, and coefficient of friction which are all useful for characterizing lubricants, coatings, foods, and personal care products.
In this webinar we will introduce the Tribo-rheometry Accessory and its application through several case studies. This program will include:
- An introduction to tribology and the tribo-rheometry accessory
- Details on the four tribo-rheometry configurations
- Experimental factors to consider when using the tribo-rheometry accessory
- Demonstrations of the tribo-rheometry accessory for personal care products, lubricants, and mouthfeel applications
