This report presents a review of measurement methods for the rheological, or flow, properties of filled materials focusing on polymeric materials and in particular on the measurement of slip flow that occurs in filled materials, predominantly through the development of a lubricating layer adjacent to the wall of the flow channel. It also describes models used for predicting the effect of filler on the viscosity of materials and presents the basis for unification of flow curves. The modelling and unification of flow curves can be used to facilitate the prediction and measurement of the rheological behaviour of materials.
