It is well known to rheologists working on immiscible polymer blends that the high-frequency properties are not affected by the deformation of the inclusions.
This rule has been widely used by rheologists because it has been proved to be useful in forecasting the steady state viscosity, [eta]([gamma]), from dynamic viscoelastic data at shear rates associated to industrial processing.

Rheologists essentially use two types of instruments to characterize the flow behavior of fluids: capillary rheometers and rotational shear viscometers.
The measurement of the elongational viscosity still continues to pose a challenge to rheologists because of experimental difficulties.
