Rheology Applied to Additive Manufacturing

On Tuesday September 10th, before the SHAPING 7, the Portuguese Ceramic and Glass Society and The European Ceramic Society, with the collaboration of the CTCV (Technological Centre of Ceramics and Glass) and the University of Aveiro will organize a School “Rheology Applied to Additive Manufacturing”. The aim of this school is to create a forum that brings together students, professors, and industrialists, going beyond the fundamentals of rheology for ceramic materials by applying them to different additive manufacturing techniques.

The program will be as follows:
9:15 Welcome Session
9:30 Fabrice Petit (Belgium) – An introduction about Additive Manufacturing Techniques
10:45 Coffee Break
11:00 Rodrigo Moreno (Spain) - Rheology of ceramic suspensions
12:15 Lunch

14:00 Gary Messing (USA) - Rheology for Additive Manufacturing of Textured Ceramics
15.15 Hélio Jorge (Portugal) – Industrial Projects in Additive Manufacturing - Case study: rheological developments and studies of alumina pastes for robocasting
16:30 Coffee Break
16:45 Visit Department of Materials and Ceramics Engineering
17:15 A “round table” with all teachers

20:00 Banquet Dinner
