Abstract

In this report, experimental data on test fluid shear stress, apparent viscosity, shear rate,

and temperature is reported and interpreted. Viscosity is a fluids internal resistance to flow under

stress. Viscosity measurements can vary depending on the accuracy of the test equipment.

Rheological properties can vary between fluids of the same type but from different

manufacturers. This lab report will address changes in rheological parameters of fluids measured

by different laboratory equipment, and at different temperatures. Rheological properties will be

estimated through laboratory testing and analysis of data through use of trendlines to model

rheological equations.

Introduction

Rheology is the study of the properties and deformation of fluids. Archimedes first

proposed the concept of the ideal fluid. Pascal stated that the pressure in a fluid is the same in

every direction in 1663. In 1687 Newton defined the resistance of an ideal fluid as proportional

to the velocity by which the fluids components are being displaced (Doraiswamy, n.d.). Bingham

suggested in 1922 that certain fluids have a yield stress after which their flow rate becomes

proportional to the stress. Herschel and Bulkley proposed an equation showing viscosity to be

dependent upon shear rate in 1926 (Bulkley and Herschel, 1926). Rheology as a field was

developing long before The Society of Rheology was effectively founded in 1929 (Doraiswamy,

n.d.). Viscosity is the measure of a fluids internal resistance to motion. Rate of deformation or

shear rate is equivalent to the velocity gradient of a fluid under shear stress. Shear stress is the

stress applied to a fluid that contributes to its deformation. The relationship between shear stress,

shear rate, and viscosity for Newtonian fluids (Boncinelli et. al, 1987) can be described using the

following equation

= () (1)

Where is shear stress, is viscosity, (du/dy) is shear rate, and n =1. The following equation

applies to the motion of non-Newtonian fluids

= () + 0 (2)

Page 2 of 9

Where is shear stress, K is instantaneous viscosity, (du/dy) is shear rate; n will be greater than 1

for dilatant fluids, and less than 1 for pseudoplastic fluids. 0 is yield stress, and will be not be

used in this equation further because none of the test fluids in this report have a yield stress.

Non-Newtonian fluids do not have a constant ratio between shear stress and shear rate

(Boncinelli et. al, 1987) so viscosity values change depending on the other rheological

parameters.

R-squared values are a statistical measure of how well the collected data is explained by

the model equation. R-squared values will be taken into consideration when estimating

rheological parameters from model equations. R-squared is calculated by subtracting the residual

sum of squares divided by the total sum of squares from 1. Data in this report is sourced from

experiments conducted by Group 2, Group 3, and from data obtained from Dr. Fasina.

Objectives

This lab report will examine the rheological properties of various fluids. Plots of shear

stress and shear rate will be used to determine if a fluid is Newtonian, pseudoplastic, or dilatant. I

will examine the rheological properties of sunflower oil at different temperatures. Using these

data, I will predict the viscosity of sunflower oil at a given temperature. Experimental data for

two test fluids from a Brooksfield viscometer will be compared to data of the same test fluids

from a Bohlin rheometer. This report will compare the viscosities of three brands of dish soap,

while considering the possible relationship between soap viscosity and dish washing efficacy.

Rheological parameters of the collected and given data will be estimated using the trendline

function of Microsoft Excel.

Materials and Methods

Data from the Bohlin rheometer was provided by Dr. Fasina. Brooksfield viscometer test

data for the salad dressing was collected by the members of group 2: Hayley Anderson, Matthew

Ballard, Adam Behr, Robert Darden, Katie Love, Conner Pope, and Tucker Watson. Correct data

on the dish soap was obtained from group 3, due to errors in the experimental data collected for

the dish soap of group 2, and will be referenced in this report accordingly.

Lab procedures were conducted using a Brooksfield digital (LVDV-E) viscometer with a

set of cylindrical spindles of different diameters. 500 mL of each test fluid were placed in a

beaker. Group 2 and 3 used PalmOlive dish soap and salad dressing as the test fluids in this

experiment. Once the chosen spindle was threaded into the viscometer head, the head and spindle

were lowered into the center of the test fluid container until the fluid reached the depth groove on

the spindle arm. Speed (rpm) and spindle number were selected using the display on the head.

Group 2 took two readings for each spindle and speed combination. We recorded data from 5

different spindle/speed combinations for each test fluid. We made sure to stir the test fluid lightly

between each reading. We did not record readings less than 10% of the viscometers range. If the

viscometer displays %EEEE, the viscosity reading is out of the viscometers range. When this

occurred, Group 2 switched to a smaller diameter spindle. When replicating this experiment

make sure to turn off the viscometer motor before removing a spindle or adjusting the head

height. The Brooksfield viscometer displayed apparent viscosity readings in centipoise, which

were later converted to Pascal-seconds.

Several graphing techniques were used to analyze the rheological data. By

plotting shear stress data () on the y axis of a graph and shear rate () on the x axis and using

Excel to fit a trendline to the data, the linear trendline equation slope was interpreted as the

apparent viscosity () of the fluid for Newtonian fluids (Equation 1). The trendline equation y-

intercept was set to zero. For non-Newtonian fluids, the power equation fit was used, and the K

represented the instantaneous slope (viscosity) at the given shear rate. The exponential

component (n) of the trendline power equation is analogous to the variable n in equation 2 and

was later used to decide if a fluid was pseudoplastic or dilatant.

Results and Discussion

Results

In this section, linear trendlines follow the form = , where y is shear stress (), m is

viscosity (), and x is shear rate (du/dy). This form is equivalent to equation 1. Non-linear or

power trendlines follow the form = where y is shear stress (), b is apparent viscosity (K),

x is shear rate (du/dy), and d is equivalent to the n value in equation 2. This form is equivalent to

equation 2.

Figure 1 shows shear stress versus shear rate for 3 fluids at 25 C. The PalmOlive dish

soap test fluid data yielded a visibly linear distribution, so the applied trendline was set to be

linear with a y-intercept of 0. The 54% starch-water mixture distribution was distinctly non-

linear, so the power trendline was applied to the data. The salad dressing plot yielded a non-

linear distribution, therefore the power trendline was fitted to the data. The R-squared values for

each trendline were all greater than 0.95 (Figure 1).

The slope of the trendline is analogous to the viscosity of the sunflower oil at that temperature

(Equation 2). The R-squared values of the trendlines for graph 2 were all greater than 0.95.

Figure 3 is a plot of sunflower oil viscosity as a function of temperature. The data was visibly

non-linear, so I chose a power trendline. The R-squared value for the trendline was 0.9368

(Figure 3).

Figure 5 compares the shear stress versus shear rate data for dish soap from the Bohlin

rheometer and the Brooksfield viscometer. Both sets of shear stress versus shear rate data

followed an approximate linear distribution. The slope (viscosity) of the Bohlin data was 0.579,

while the slope of the Brooksfield data was 0.5515(Figure 5). The R-squared value of the Bohlin

data was 1, while the R-squared value of the Brooksfield data was 0.7967(Figure 5). Figure 4

compares Bohlin and Brooksfield data for shear stress and shear rate of salad dressing. The

power trendline for the data sets each had an R-squared value greater than 0.95, but the viscosity

coefficients were markedly different (Figure 4). Data for the dish soap was collected by group 3

on the Brooksfield viscometer using the same procedure as stated in the methods section of this

report.

Figure 6. Shear stress versus shear rate plot for different dish soap brands with linear

trendlines and R-squared values.

The shear stress versus shear strain data for three different dish soap brands were plotted

on the same chart in Figure 6. All data sets fit a linear trendline with a y-intercept of 0. Gain had

a viscosity of 0.6755, PalmOlive had a viscosity of 0.579, and PriceFirst had a viscosity of

0.2197. All trendlines had an R-squared value of approximately 1.

Discussion

The trendline equation of salad dressing is = 0.0039 0.2147 (Figure 1). Non-Newtonian

fluids with a n-value of less than 1 are said to be pseudoplastic or shear-thinning (Equation 2).

Therefore, from the trendline equation of the salad dressing stress versus strain data, one can

conclude that the salad dressing is pseudoplastic. The trendline of the PalmOlive dish soap is

linear with an R-squared value of 1, indicating that the dish soap is a Newtonian fluid (Figure 1).

Page 8 of 9

The 54% starch-water mixture has a power trendline equation with an n-value of greater than 1,

indicating that the mixture is dilatant (Figure 1).

From Figure 3, the viscosity of sunflower oil decreases as temperature increases. As oil is

heated, its viscosity decreases (Cochran et. al, 1987). All trendlines in Figure 2 have an R-

squared value close to 1. Additionally, the sunflower oil is a Newtonian fluid due to the linear

distribution of its data (Figure 2).

The data from the Bohlin and Brooksfield equipment are remarkably different. The

trendline equations for PalmOlive soap for Bohlin and Brooksfield are similar, but the

Brooksfield trendline R-squared value is 0.7967 (Figure 5). This indicates that the trendline

equation is not a good fit for the Brooksfield data. The viscosity values given by the PalmOlive

trendline equations are similar (0.579 and 0.5515) (Figure 5) compared to the gap in viscosity

values for the salad dressing trendlines (26.28 and 0.2717) (Figure 4). The R-squared values of

the trendlines for salad dressing are both greater than 0.95, but the equations have significantly

different viscosity values (Figure 4). This may be due to error. It is difficult to see the

Brooksfield data on both Figure 4 and Figure 5, and I suspect this is due to temperature

differences during testing.

Gain dish soap has the highest viscosity at 0.6755. PriceFirst has the lowest viscosity,

0.2197 (Figure 6). All trendlines in figure 6 have an R-squared value close to 1, so I am

confident in the trendline equations accuracy as a model equation for shear stress. On

dishwashing efficiency, a more viscous soap would be economical. Dish detergents are soap

molecules mixed in liquid water used to emulsify oils in food to enable them to be rinsed off

with tap water. A dish soap with higher viscosity would have a lower percentage of water in the

bottle, requiring less soap to be used to wash dishes and therefore being more efficient. Note that

the soap viscosity should not be so high as to make the soap impractical to wash dishes with, or

semi-solid.

Conclusion

Rheology is relatively new field of science, although it has a long history. Shear stress,

shear rate, and viscosity can be related to each other through linear equations (Newtonian fluids)

and non-linear equations (non-Newtonian fluids). These equations can then be used to explain

data distribution of shear stress versus shear rate data for a test fluid. It is vital to check the R-

squared values of these trendline equations to see if they are of a sufficient fit to the data.

Trendlines with R-squared values of less than 0.95 do not accurately explain collected data, and

should not be used to estimate rheological parameters. Rheological parameters can be estimated

through experimental analysis of fluids by a rheometer or viscometer if care is taken to make

data as accurate as possible. Ensuring fluids are of some standard temperature is vital to accurate

measurement of rheological parameters.
