A CONSIDERABLE amount of attention has been directed in the past to the rheological behaviour of suspensions of deformable particles when subjected to oscillatory motion, with the result that there is now a reasonable body of theory and experimental data relating to the gross behaviour. However, there appears to be little information available for suspensions of undeformable particles such as the clay–water system reported here, although they may exhibit very interesting behaviour.
