Rheology: Theory and Applications, Volume 3 is a collection of articles contributed by experts in the field of rheology - the science of deformation and flow.

This volume is composed of specialized chapters on the application of normal coordinate analysis to the theory of high polymers; principles of rheometry; and the rheology of cross-linked plastics, poly electrolytes, latexes, inks, pastes, and clay. Also included are a series of technological articles on lubrication, spinning, molding, extrusion, and adhesion and a survey of the general features of industrial rheology.

Materials scientists, geophysicists, and engineers will find the book very insightful.
