The rheologist examines the same system as before, but he would like to consider viscous dissipation in his analysis.
The relative shear rate is defined as 1 / fill time, which results in units of I/sec, the same units used by rheologists for describing shear rates.
The instrument is capable of a large range of fully defined rheological tests; fully customizable test procedures, allowing rheologists to carry out advanced tests of their own design; step-by-step guided testing for the less experienced operator; simulation for teaching the fundamentals of rheology and the workings of the rheometer; advanced equilibrium determination, allowing the testing of very difficult materials; and self-calibration and automatic zero offsetting of pressures and temperatures to give very high confidence in the absolute values obtained.
Thus, searching and constructing new constitutive equations or models that are suitable to apply in polymer processing have been one of the hot points and focal points for rheologists and polymer processing engineers.
With the acquisition of Rheometric Scientific, we now offer the advanced ARES rheometers, the choice of most leading polymer rheologists for characterization of solids and melts.
Private communications with mold makers, Dow Corning rheologists and injection molding press manufacturers.
This function is also widely used by rheologists to normalize ([[eta].
Company representatives were on hand to discuss how Paar Physica's expert rheologists and its equipment could help fill the testing needs of ANTEC attendees.
