 Project objective

'The purpose of this project is to demonstrate a proof-of-concept for a novel and universal method to mechano-spectroscopically investigate transient evolution of a complex-fluid's microstructure when subjected to a non-linear deformation or flow. Dr Victor Boudara will pursue this goal at the Department of Chemical Engineering of KU Leuven, under the supervision of Prof Christian Clasen. The goals of the project will be achieved by combining an optimized excitation signal structure (as recently introduced with the novel 'Optimally Windowed Chirp' technique) with the concept of orthogonal superposition rheometry. The possibility to superpose such a rapid mechano-spectroscopy onto deforming system would allow, for the first time, to characterise the material property evolution of rapidly mutating materials over a wide range of frequencies under nonlinear shear flow. Such materials include gelling polymers, proteins, colloidal gels or jamming glasses, which are not only of fundamental but also of industrial and biomedical interest.'

Are you the coordinator (or a participant) of this project? Plaese send me more information about the "ORTHOCHIRP" project.

For instance: the website url (it has not provided by EU-opendata yet), the logo, a more detailed description of the project (in plain text as a rtf file or a word file), some pictures (as picture files, not embedded into any word file), twitter account, linkedin page, etc.

Send me an  email ( and I put them in your project's page as son as possible.

Thanks. And then put a link of this page into your project's website.

The information about "ORTHOCHIRP" are provided by the European Opendata Portal: CORDIS opendata.
