Welcome to the ASR

The Australian Society of Rheology is open to all who are practicing, or have an interest, in the field of Rheology. There are no formal requirements for entry. We are privileged to number amongst our members leading Australian Rheologists from both Academic and Industrial backgrounds.

The membership of the ASR is drawn from academic, government, commercial and industrial backgrounds and as such provides a strong and broad base of rheological knowledge. We are also delighted to have a number of overseas members. A principal aim of the Society is to form a bridge between academic research and industry.
