Significance and Use
5.1 Rotational viscosity measurements allow the determination of the non-Newtonian, shear thinning property of drain oil. Rotational viscosity values can be compared at a shear rate of 100 s-1 by this test method.,
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the rotational viscosity and the shear thinning properties of heavy duty diesel engine drain oils at 100°C, in the shear rate range of approximately 10 to 300 s-1, in the shear stress range of approximately 0.1 to 10 Pa and the viscosity range of approximately 12 to 35 mPa·s. Rotational viscosity values can be compared at a shear rate of 100 s-1 by this test method.,
