Guide to Rheological Nomenclature: Measurement in Ceramic Particulate Systems

Published

Abstract

This document provides definitions of terms and expressions relating to the measurement of rheological properties in liquid-based ceramic particulate systems (i.e., suspensions, pastes, and gels). The definitions are largely generic and should be compatible with non-ceramic applications and fields.
