Summary

Because it is easy to measure, viscosity is often used for control of suspension behavior. Because viscosity is affected by so many fundamental properties, it can be confusing, misleading, and even lead to nuncontroln of the process it is designed to aid. Methods of testing and analysis are presented to attempt to put perspective on the use of viscosity for control.
