    Eleven peer-reviewed papers provide the latest to current research and practices on viscosity and rheology of in-service fluids as they pertain to condition monitoring.

    Topics cover:
    • Grease Working and Its Role in Consistency Trending
    • Possible Impact of In-Service Grease Mixtures with a Stress Rheometer as an Element of a Predictive Maintenance Program
    • Comparison of the Effects of Normal Automobile Engine Use on the High Shear Rate Viscosity, Wear, and Volatility of Four Engine Oils
    • Die-Extrusion Method for Comparing Changes in Grease Consistency and Flow Characteristics
    • Application of Sensors for In-Situ Measurements of In-Service Grease Rheology
    • Absolute Viscosity and Sample Density Measurement Methods to Determine and Report Absolute and Kinematic Viscosity Values for Used Lubricating Oils
    • Start-Up Viscosity of In-Service Engine Oils at Low Temperatures
    • Rheological Property Measurements of Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids with the Falling Needle Viscometer
    • Hand-portable Kinematic Viscometer
    • Use of Routine Low-Temperature Viscosity Measurement to Prevent Sudden Transformer Failure upon Very Cold Startup
    • Low-Temperature Rheological Response of Fresh Versus Used Oils Using the Scanning Brookfield Technique
