Section 1 - Introduction to rheology
This gives a brief introduction to the basic terms and definitions encountered in rheology.
Section 2 - Selecting measuring geometries
This covers the selection of measuring geometries.
Section 3 - Flow characterisation
Covers viscometry tests, flow curves and rheological models. Time and temperature dependence arelooked at as sources of rheological error.
