ChemTec Publishing announces publication of the second edition of Rheology. Concepts, Methods, and Applications
The second edition of this excellent book brings many new features, which were outlined in the preface to the 2nd Edition (see http://www.chemtec.org/proddetail.php?prod=978-1-895198-49-2).
The pursuit of the golden balance between oversimplification and overload with theory has always been the primary goal of every author of book on rheology. Rheology is a tool for chemists and chemical engineers to solve many practical problems. They have to learn what to measure, how to measure, and what to do with the data. But, the learning process should not take users away from their major goals, such as manufacturing quality products, developing new materials, analysis of material durability.
The first four chapters of this book discuss various aspects of theoretical rheology and, by examples of many studies, show how particular theory, model, or equation can be used in solving different problems. The main emphasis is on liquids but solid materials are discussed in one full chapter.
The goal of rheological studies is not to measure some rheological variables but to generate relevant data and this requires experience and understanding of theory. The authors share their experiences of many years of experimental studies and teaching to show use of rheology in studies of materials. This is one very strong aspect of this book which will help to avert costly confusions - common when data are generated under wrong conditions or data are wrongly used.
Many people need this book, ranging from students to accomplished rheologists because it contains expert advice of two very famous and accomplished scientists and teachers who know discoveries first-hand because they may have taken part in some of them and they intent to pass their knowledge to the next generations.
This book is very useful in industry but it is invaluable as a teaching tool in universities and colleges because it is consistent with programs of rheology courses. Practicality of this book will prepare students for typical tasks in industry.
