Abstract

A modified Haake Rotovisco RV 21 is used to investigate the electrorheological properties of corn Starch and mineral oil and Dow Corning ER fluid (which is composed of a sulfate ionomer of aminosiloxane dispersed at a 26% by weight concentration in a 20 CP polydimethylsiloxane fluid). The steady shear viscosity under electric fields are measured to clarify the validity of the instrument. A conjecture concerning its yield stress at various field strengths is also made.
