Small-amplitude oscillatory shear (SAOS) measurements were implemented at 200[degrees]C in the oscillatory shear mode using the 25-mm parallel plate geometry; the gap was set at 1 mm, and frequency sweeps ranging from 0.01 to 100 rad/s were performed at 1 % strain to maintain the experiment within the linear viscoelastic domain.

The scientists determined rheological properties using strain sweeps, frequency sweeps and large amplitude oscillatory shear (LAOS) measurements.
Figure 9 presents time-averaged wall shear stress (TAWSS), and Figure 10 presents the oscillatory shear index (OSI) distribution in the five models.
Nehdi and Martini [17] studied the effects of the mixing time and temperature on the yield stress of cemented pastes incorporating various super plasticizers, where the yield stress was characterized by the oscillatory shear test.

The highest oscillatory nature was confined to the outer wall of the LCX, and the highly restricted distributions of flow and oscillatory shear stress along the walls firmly corresponded with the principal locations of atheroma in the left coronary artery; hence, the rates of atherosclerosis in LCX are, in theory, higher.
Measurements with a 10W30 engine oil showed that cold lubricant is a viscoelastic medium that exhibits both a storage (elastic) modulus and a loss (viscous) modulus when submitted to a small oscillatory shear rate.
The oscillatory shear index was defined as follows: |retrograde shear|/(antegrade shear + |retrograde shear|) (22).
Using this technique, stable lesions develop distal to the cast under conditions of oscillatory shear stress, whereas vulnerable lesions (containing a small amount of collagen) develop proximal to the cast due to a low shear stress.
Three oil-in-water cosmetic emulsions were studied using simple and oscillatory shear rheological tests.
