9781560815792: Rheology: Principles, Measurements and Applications

One of the difficulties that arises between much literature on rheology and those who try to understand it, is the tensor. Many books on rheology have therefore been written in only one dimension. This volume tackles the tensor in such a way as to make the problems accessible and understandable, by simplifying notation and making the three-dimensional approach to rheology practical. The book includes some exercises, with solutions at the end of the book. This work could be used as both a reference and a textbook on rheology and rheological phenomena, including techniques and applications of rheology. Students, engineers in the polymer industry and mechanical engineers should find this book a useful reference on all aspects of rheology.

From the Publisher:

This book covers the essential criteria for selecting the best test types for various applications, accurately interpreting the results, and determining other areas where rheology and rheological phenomena may be useful. This book is broken up into three sections: 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.

From the Back Cover:

Rheology Principles, Measurements, and Applications Christopher W. Macosko

If you use rheological measurements to characterize new materials, analyze non-Newtonian flow problems, or design plastic parts, or if you would like to use rheology to overcome a particular problem, this volume will prove invaluable to your research. 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.
