Determination of the Thixotropic Property of an Emulsion Gel Paint
step change in shear rate or shear stress (step-shear test),
consecutive linear increase and decrease in shear rate (loop test), and
sinusoidal change in shear rate (oscillatory test). All of these can be used to study the physical and chemical bases, the molecular and the particulate nature of thixotropic phenomena (the material science application). They can also be used to provide data for engineering applications, such as solution of equations of motion, mathematical modelling, empirical correlation of engineering data etc.
