The ratio (3 + l)/4n is called the Rabinowitsch Correction Factor and it is used to convert Newtonian shear rates to true shear rates. [Pg.372]

Polymer melts are frequendy non-Newtonian. In this case the earlier expression given for the shear rate at the capillary wall does not hold. A correction factor (3n + 1)/4n, called the Rabinowitsch correction, must be appHed in such a way that equation 21 appHes, where 7 is the tme shear rate at the wall and nis 2l power law factor (eq. 22) determined from the slope of a log—log plot of the tme shear stress at the wad, T, vs 7. For a Newtonian hquid, n = 1. A tme apparent viscosity, Tj, can be calculated from equation 23. [Pg.183]

If the capillary rheometer is used to compare different polymers, it is not necessary to go through the various correction procedures. However, if one wants to know the absolute values of the viscosity, it is important to apply the various correction factors. The most important corrections are the correction of the shear rate for non-Newtonian fluid behavior (often referred to as Rabinowitsch correction) and the correction of the shear stress for entrance effects (often referred to as Bagley correction). These are the most common corrections applied to capillary rheometers. Other corrections that are sometimes considered are corrections for viscous heating, corrections for the effect of pressure on viscosity, corrections for compressibility, correction for time effects, etc. If many corrections are applied to the data, the whole measurement and data analysis procedure can become very complex and time consuming.
