Polymer Rheology

The study of flow of matter is known as Rheology basically in a liquid state, but also responds for  "soft solids" or solids like plastic flow rather than deforming elastically in response to applied force. It is a department of physics which deals with the deformation and flow of materials, both solids and liquids. Rheology generally accounts for the behavior of non-Newtonian fluids, by distinguish the minimum number of functions that are needed to relate stresses with rate of change of strain or strain rates. Rheometry is experimental characterization of a material's rheological behavior .In execution, rheology is principally concerned with prolong continuum mechanics to characterize flow of materials, that indicates a combination of elastic, viscous and plastic behavior by properly combining elasticity and (Newtonian) fluid mechanics. Rheology has many application in polymer science and engineering, pharmaceutics, biology and physiology.
