For fundamental contributions to the dynamics of complex fluids. Together with three other Bingham medalists, Hassager developed the two volume series, Dynamics of Polymeric Liquids. His group perfected the technique of filament stretching rheometry to make definitive measurements of the steady and transient rheology of polymer melts and entangled solutions.

An article on the contributions of Prof. Hassager on rheology will appear in the upcoming issue of Rheology Bulletin.
