Title: A rheometer for measuring the material moduli for granular solids. Quarterly progress report, December 1, 1990--Februray 28, 1991

Abstract

In this report, we will outline an experimental method for characterizing the material properties of granular solids, like coal particles, and other powders and slurries. The instrument to be used for this purpose consists of two disks rotating with the same angular speed about distinct axes. By measuring the forces and the torque acting on the top and bottom disks and correlating them with the theoretical expressions for the tractions and moment in question. The above described technique draws upon a method devised for measuring the properties of viscoelastic solids and fluids.
