By H.A. Barnes

Rheology is, by way of universal consent, a tricky topic and a few of the theoretical parts are frequently considered as being of prohibitive complexity by means of scientists with out a robust mathematical heritage. There also are the problems inherent in any multidisciplinary technology like rheology for people with a particular education. for that reason, novices to the sphere are often discouraged, and for them the prevailing texts at the topic - a few of that are remarkable - are of constrained assistance due to their intensity of element and hugely mathematical nature. This e-book introduces the topic of rheology in phrases comprehensible to non-experts and describes the appliance of rheological rules to many commercial items and tactics. It presents an easy yet authoritative advisor which indicates basically how arithmetic, physics and chemistry have contributed to the advance of rheology. The ordinary positive aspects of all liquid-like fabrics are summarised: viscosity, linear viscoelasticity, general stresses and extensional viscosity. specific platforms are then mentioned; polymeric drinks and suspensions.
