Reviews

@qu:...a good long-term investment. @source:Powder Technology @qu:...a thoroughly enjoyable addition to my library and I would quickly recommend it to anyone with an interest in rheology or fluid mechanics in general. @source:Applied Mechanics Review @qu:...is recommended not only as a teaching tool but also for applied rheologists who are interested in the relevance of viscoelasticity. @source:Rheology 94 @from:H. Ramkissoon @qu:... This is a book that I would highly recommend to rheologists, particularly to those teaching the subject. The photographic work is of an extremely high standard, and the accompanying explanation and notes are written in a clear and concise manner. @source:Zentralblatt fuer Mathematik und ihre Grenzgebiete .
