These rates were determined by calculating the mean rate of absolute viscosity for each temperature to the shearing tensions (or deformation rate) applied to the sample.
It is noted that the absolute viscosity involved in [alpha], as well as the viscosity ratio, becomes an important parameter to determine the pressurized coating process.
2] = shear stress acted by fluid on lower surface of the blank element du = velocity of the blank element relative to blank holder and die surface [mu] = dynamic viscosity or absolute viscosity or Viscosity of fluid [[tau].
