Brookfield Engineering introduced its updated “More Solutions to Sticky Problems,” a resource for professionals who want to get more from their viscometers and rheometers. It explains the process of making rheological measurements and suggests Brookfield instrumentation for specific applications. The guide presents additional viscosity measurement techniques and explains the difference between Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids.

Chapter one discusses the primary reasons for making rheological measurements and chapter two presents the wide variety of instruments, accessories and systems designed for specific applications. The third chapter takes the reader through the actual process of making viscosity measurements and chapter four digs deeper into the basics of rheology. Chapter five discusses how to analyze data and the sixth chapter explains various test methods.

The guide also contains several appendices covering everything from spindle dimensions and entry codes, to shear rates, ASTM specifications and a list of industry publications covering rheology and viscosity measurement.
