Speciality engineering thermoplastics are steadily gaining importance in a wide variety of high temperature applications due to their excellent performance char acteristics at elevated temperatures. A knowledge of the rheological behaviour of these speciality polymers over an industrially relevant range of shear rate and temperature is essential m the design of polymer processing equipment, process optimization and trouble-shooting. A method proposed earlier has been extended to estimate the…

Steady Simple Shear Flow and the Viscometric Functions

Steady simple shear is of central importance in applied rheology for two reasons: first, it is the flow that is by far the easiest to generate in the laboratory, and secondly, a number of processes of industrial importance, particularly extrusion and flow in many types of die, approximate steadysimple shear flow.
