Abstract—In this paper, our aim was to the measure the viscosity of rubber at various stages of its curing by taking a sample out of the raw material and using the rheometer to test its composition from its Rheogram. The key features of the design are its ability to test small sample volumes and to retain the presence of a hydrating layer. The rheometer uses a piezoelectric actuator and sensor to induce an oscillatory stress and to measure the corresponding strain. The other objective is to design and implement data acquisition system for acquiring Torque and Synchronize signal and plot the rheogram on computer by the developing the Graphical user interface.
Index Terms—Viscosity, rheogram, polymerization, vulcanization, signal processing system, ADC card.
