Yield Stress: a predictive tool for determining suspending properties?

Appl. Rheol. 20:3 (2010) 33009 (5 pages)

Abstract: There have been many publications on the measurement and use of yield stress as a means of determining the ability of a system to suspend. Although in theory it is a useful predictive tool, in reality, it will often be found to give erroneous results, particularly when attempting to draw comparisons between dissimilar systems. Alternative techniques can be used which, whilst not being perfect, will give results which are closer to the reality. Several of these methods are evaluated and compared. © 2010 Applied Rheology.
