Mission of the Czech Group of Rheology

The Czech Group of Rheology belongs to the Czech Chemical Society – the oldest and the biggest chemical society in the Czech Republic, which brings together specialists in the field of rheology. Rheology is the science of deformation and flow of matter, which has been established in 1929 as a new interdisciplinary and an independent science discipline, which is primarily based on chemistry, physics, mathematics, mechanics, material sciences, and engineering. It has been founded by chemistry professor Eugene Cook Bingham from Lafayette College and civil engineer Markus Reiner (later a research professor at the Israel Institute of Technology).

The main objective of the group is to mediate expert meetings and to share information in area of basic and applied rheology research and development.


International activities

The Czech Group of Rheology is actively involved via its representative in the International Committee on Rheology (ICR) and the Applied Rheology Division of the Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE).
