apparent viscosity

ap·par·ent vis·cos·i·ty

the viscosity calculated from the Poiseuille law at any particular flow and tube diameter; it is used for suspensions, such as blood, that exhibit anomalous viscosity and the Fahraeus-Lindqvist effect.

The apparent viscosity is an important melt property, and often used as an indicator of other polymer properties such as molecular weight, modulus, and others.
The limiting yield stress is equal to zero but apparent viscosity remains constant during water motion in plane radial crack at openness values of 30 and 35 pm, at 303 and 293 K temperatures, respectively, in both the first and second experiments series (Figs.
Therefore, due to significance of this subject, the objective of present study is to define some physiochemical (Brix, pH, acidity and DM) and rheological properties of grape juice in Iran (Urmia and Sabevar) such as measuring shear stress and shear rate in different temperatures, apparent viscosity, flow behavior index and activation energy of grape juice.

An increase in milk heating temperature resulted in an increase in apparent viscosity of stirred yogurts (Lee and Lucey, 2006).
Furthermore, it is worth noting that the 1500 ppm AC-1 and 800 ppm AC-2 solutions have almost the same zero-shear viscosity, but due to the stronger shear-thinning character of the latter solution, the apparent viscosity of the AC-1 solution is larger than that of the AC-2 at high shear-rates (larger than 1 s-1).
