Summary Rheology: Principles, Measurements, and Applications presents an extremely practical, timely, and accessible three-dimensional account of the subject. It has been specifically designed to enable researchers to understand and apply information from the latest rheological literature to their own operations. Worked examples and exercises with solutions make it ideal for self-study. This book covers the essential criteria for selecting the best test types for various applications, accurately interpreting results, and determining other areas where rheology and rheological phenomena may be useful in your work. Section one develops important constitutive equations using simple deformations; section two explores shear and extensional rheometers, techniques for measuring material functions, and optical methods in rheology; and section three discusses applications of rheology to polymeric liquid and dispersions
Rheology: Principles, Measurements, and Applications will be of greatest interest to chemical engineers, chemists, polymer scientists, and mechanical engineers, as well as students in these and related fields
