Abstract : A method is described for the determination of the true shear rate in a concentric cylinder viscometer. A computer program based on the MacSporran technique is used. The program is tested on model as well as real fluids and is shown to be satisfactory. Shear rate determination in yield stress and time-dependent fluids is also discussed.
