The High Temperature Rheometer System in the Advanced Steel Research Centre is used to carry out viscosity measurements especially suitable for materials with high melting point. The FRS1600 consists of a rotational rheometer using a Double Concentric Cylinder, the first includes the molten material and the second creates the shear stress. The attached furnace goes up to 1520 °𝐶 after calibration. Viscosity is a physical property that characterises the fluidity of a liquid.
