• 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; and
• Low-Temperature Rheological Response of Fresh Versus Used Oils Using the Scanning Brookfield Technique.

STP 1564, Viscosity and Rheology of In-Service Fluids as They Pertain to Condition Monitoring, is available for $76 USD in print (130 pages; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7550-1; stock #: STP1564) or as an e-book (ISBN: 978-0-8031-7574-7; stock #: STP1564-EB).
