An analysis of polymer and composite rheology. This second edition covers flow properties of thermoplastic and thermoset polymers, and general principles and applications of all phases of polymer rheology, with new chapters on the rheology of particulate and fibre composites. It also includes new and expanded detail on polymer blends and emulsions, foams, reacting systems, and flow through porous media as well as composite processing operations.Here the cone angle is measured in radians, pa is atmospheric pressure, and Tw is the total stress exerted by the fluid normal ... This measurement, however, is not easy to make with any degree of accuracy. ... if the size of the particulates is comparable to the distance between the truncated cone and the surface of the plate.
