Abstract

Bingham in his book "Fluidity and Plasticity" has described a type of viscometer similar to the Ostwald visocometer but which has the added feature of a variable applied pressure. By changing the pressure the time of flow may be controlled so that a rather viscous liquid will not have an inconveniently long time of flow in a viscometer which in suitable for another liquid. The construction of such an apparatus consists in teh assembly of a special viscometer with an arrangement for applying air pressure, measurement of such air pressure, and the placement of the viscometer in a thermostat. Such an arrangement may be seen in the included diagram.
