This book has been written in the spirit that energized far greater scientists. Some of them express that spirit in the following quotations.

"This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets could only proceed from the counsel and domination of an intelligent and powerful Being."
- Isaac Newton

"Think what God has determined to do all those who submit themselves to His righteousness and are willing to receive His gift."
- James C. Maxwell
June 23, 1864

"In the distance tower still higher peaks, which will yield to those who ascend them still wider prospects, and deepen the feeling whose truth is emphasized by every advance in science, that 'Great are the works of the Lord'".
J.J. Thomson,
Nature, 81, 257 (1909)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0471185752, Hardcover)

If you use rheological measurements to characterize new materials, analyze non-Newtonian flow problems, or design plastic parts, or if you would like to use rheology to overcome a particular problem, this pragmatic volume will prove invaluable to your research.

Rheology: Principles, Measurements, and Applications presents an extremly practical, timely, and accessible three-dimensional account of this subject. It has been specifically designed to enable researchers to understand and apply information from the latest rheological literature to their own applications.

Divided into three sections, the book covers the essential criteria for selecting the best test types for various applications, for accurately interpreting results, and for determining other areas where rheology and rheological phenomena may be useful in your work.

This book will be of greatest interest to polymer scientists and mechanical engineers, as well as students in these and related fields.
