7Boltzmann Superposition Principle The principle of linear superposition of stresses and/or deformations：• The response to any event is linear；• All consequent events lead to independent responses.The material reacts to the next action as if no former action took place!Rheology: Concepts, methods and applications.

9Frequency Defined Test Input: strain (g), frequency (w), and gap (H). Measure: torque (M) and phase angle (d).
10Frequency SweepCurve of a frequency sweep used to talk about oscillation modes; talk about other ways to run the experiment like time sweeps, temp sweeps; ability to do in both controlled strain and stress mode and advantage of eachthe waveform and why that is important(and unique to us)The amplitude of the perturbation can be freely chosen for each frequency, and dynamic modulus measurement is so far the most common method of linear viscoelastic characterization currently.
11Stress Relaxation vs. Frequency Spectrum G(t) vs. tG'(ω) vs. ωthe amplitude of the perturbation can be freely chosen for each frequency,A is monodisperse with M<Mc; B is monodisperse with M>>Mc and C is polydisperseLVE response is very sensitive to the molecular structure of the polymers

20Torque Measurement is Unaffected by Motor Inertia & Friction 旋转流变仪的种类FRTTorque Measurement is Unaffected by Motor Inertia & FrictionMotor Inertia & friction Involved in Torque MeasurementMotor/ TransducerPrimary Moving ElementsMotorThe SMT architecture is preferable to the CMT architecture because the most massive moving element (the motor) is physically isolated from the torque measurement. The motor is also where the largest motions occur. This is in contrast to the CMT in which the motor and sample torque are conflated because the heavy, large moving element is used to measure (apply) the torque.应力控制型（CMT）应变控制型（SMT）20

54Rheology needs a lot of experience Rheology needs a lot of experience. Modern rheometers will give you numbers, no problem, but the question is always whether they are correct. That and the optimization of the parameters to minimize the noise and do what you want to the material (destroy or not destroy a structure) is what sets a good rheologist apart from an inexperienced one.
