Powder rheometer

Working principle / output

The powder rheometer allows characterizing the mechanical behavior of powders in different configurations and predicting its ability to flow through an orifice, to be suspended/aerated/entrained by a gas, to be uniaxially compressed, to be fragmented/eroded. Typical results include the yield locus under shear (yield shear stress for a given normal consolidation stress), permeability, stress-strain curve, apparent density, energy required for a rotating blade to vertically move through the packing, …
