    Equipments Details


    A rheometer is a laboratory device used to measure the way in which a liquid, suspension or slurry flows in response to applied forces. It is used for those fluids which cannot be defined by a single value of viscosity and therefore require more parameters to be set and measured than is the case for a viscometer. It measures the rheology of the fluid.
    Information that can be gained include viscosity flow curve, storage modulus, and loss modulus. The laboratory performs rheological testing, specifically steady shear (flow curve), oscillatory tests (elastic modulus, viscous modulus, and phase angle), tensile tests, transient flow experiments (creep and stress relaxation, yield stress).
