Manfred H. Wagner
is Professor for Polymer Engineering and Polymer Physics at TU
Berlin. He was born in Stuttgart, Germany in 1948. As a Physics Major,
he graduated as a PhD in Chemical Engineering at the Institute for
Polymer Processing of Stuttgart University. After 2 years as a
post-doc in Polymer Physics with Prof. J. Meissner at the ETH Zürich,
and after 9 years of industrial experience, he returned to Stuttgart
University in 1988 as Professor for Fluid Dynamics and Rheology. In
1998/99, he was Dean of the Faculty of Chemical Engineering and
Engineering Cybernetics of Stuttgart University. In 1999, he moved to
His scientific interests include constitutive equations for polymeric systems, the application of rheology to polymer processing, and structure-property relations for polymers. He has published to date over 200 papers on solid state physics, carbon and graphite technology, and rheology and processing of polymer melts. In 1981, he received the Annual Award of the British Society of Rheology and in 2002, the Swinburne Award of The Institute of Materials, London.
He was President of the German Society of Rheology (DRG) from 1991 to 2003, Secretary (1996 to 2005) and President (2005 to 2009) of the European Society of Rheology (ESR). Since 2004, he is Secretary of the International Committee on Rheology (ICR). The East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST), Shanghai, awarded him the title of “Guest Professor”. He received the Weissenberg Award 2011 of the ESR.
