Rheology is the study of the deformation and flow of matter. This field aims to understand the rheological behavior of liquids by investigating the complex interactions between deformation, force, and time. Understanding the behavior of materials especially those that resemble liquid behavior is at the core of rheology. This includes the features of materials that display both liquid and solid qualities. In rheology studies, devices called rheometers are commonly used to perform various tests. These tests provide information about the flow properties and viscoelastic behaviors of liquids. In rheological analysis first section, focusing on the flow and viscosity properties of liquids, includes tests designed to measure and understand the behavior of both simple and complex fluids. On the other hand, the second section concentrates on deformation and viscoelasticity. Rheology, employed to assess the flow and deformation behaviors of liquids across a wide range of applications, plays a critical role in optimizing the design and processing of liquid products in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, food, and manufacturing.
