This is the study programme for 2019/2020. It is subject to change.


Basic intermolecular forces. Surface forces in colloid systems. Rheological behaviour of concentrated suspension.

Learning outcome

To give the student a thorough knowledge of colloid systems and the surface forces that influence the physical behaviour of such systems. The student should thus be able to solve a relevant petroleum related problem through studies of surface forces of particles in concentrated suspension.
