(2016)In this work we revisit the issue of obtaining true material constants for semisolid slurries. Therefore, we consider the circular Couette flow of Herschel-Bulkley fluids. We first show how true constants can be obtained ...
(2006)A rotating vane-cup rheometer is used to determine the rheological properties of semi-solid slurries, and a procedure is established for characterizing the rheology with emphasis given to the proper and self-consistent ...
