Group Applied Mechanics (AME)
The research of the Applied Mechanics group is dedicated to the rheology and formulations of complex fluids. Supporting the development of modern processing and application technologies as well as understanding the effect of microscopic structures and interactions are complementary and equally important aspects of our research activities. In complex, multi-phase fluids, product formulation and process engineering have to be carefully coordinated in order to achieve technical success. Based on the understanding of these relationships, we develop formulations of multi-phase fluids with carefully adjusted flow behavior.
