This lesson covers the principles and equations of rotational viscometers, specifically focusing on parallel disk rheometers. It delves into the working principles of these devices, their applications in the rubber industry, and how they can be used to measure the rheology of non-Newtonian fluids. The lesson also explains how to calculate shear stress, shear rate, and normal stress differences using these rheometers. It further discusses the impact of factors like gap size and rotational speed on these measurements. An example problem is solved to illustrate the application of these concepts in real-world scenarios.

Rotational viscometers, particularly parallel disk rheometers, are crucial in understanding the rheology of non-Newtonian fluids.

The shear stress, shear rate, and normal stress differences can be calculated using these rheometers, with factors like gap size and rotational speed playing a significant role.

Cone and plate rheometers are particularly useful for measuring the rheology of fluids expected to have non-Newtonian behavior.
