Rheology is basically the study of the flow or deformation of matter. It generally describes flow or deformation in terms of shear rate and shear stress. Shear rate is defined as the flow velocity gradient in the direction perpendicular to the flow direction. The higher the shear rate, the higher the friction between the flowing particles. The friction between particles is measured by the shear force per unit area of shearing layer, or shear stress. Fluids are classified according to the different categories in rheological studies on the basis of their flow behaviors.
Most drilling fluids are too complex to be characterized by the Newtonian model. Fluids that do not exhibit a direct proportionality between shear stress and shear rate are classified as non-Newtonian. Non-Newtonian fluids that are widely used in the drilling industry are the plastic and pseudo plastic fluids described by the Bingham plastic model and the Power Law model. The Herschel-Bulkley model is widely used by office engineers in designing fluid hydraulics. These non-Newtonian fluids are thixotropic because the apparent viscosity (shear stress divided by shear rate) decreases with time after the shear rate is increased to a new value.
