Celebrating 30 years of the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society: Part 4
The 30th Volume of the Annual Transactions of the Nordic Rheology Society (ATNRS) was published in conjunction with the Nordic Rheology Conference 2022. To celebrate this anniversary, we are highlighting some notable papers published in the ATNRS over the years.

The 12th Volume of the ATNRS featured a paper by de Souza Mendes and Dutra that introduced a new viscosity function for viscoplastic liquids. To demonstrate the effectiveness of this function, the authors successfully fitted it to the data for Carbopol aqueous solutions, a drilling fluid, an water/oil emulsion, a commercial mayonnaise, and a paper coating formulation. You can read the full manuscript here: Link to the paper.
