About the book

In recent years, there has been considerable interest in rheology because of its multifunctional applicability in totally diverse fields that range from food and cosmetics to enhanced oil recovery from deep seas. Advanced electronics and signal processing has made it possible to detect very small changes in the microstructure systems subject to stress and strain and at different temperatures. Combining rheological findings with simultaneous microscopic imaging provides deep insights into the molecular interactions between various components in the mixture. Such information is of crucial importance while designing a product, may it be an engine lubricant or yogurt.

This book attempts to provide to its readers, both the expert and the beginner, whether from academia or industry, a comprehensive and compact overview of rheology and its applications across different disciplines like foods and pharmaceuticals, lubricants, and paints. It is for this purpose that we will cover the fundamental aspects of rheology before going to advanced topics and applications in subsequent chapters, and we will specifically avoid mathematical derivations so that readers from non-mathematical backgrounds may seamlessly follow through the content.
