Rheology is the study of the flow and deformation of matter, which is used for examining visco-elastic properties of engineering materials such as paints, polymers and food. The technology is also used in understanding how nature produces one of her finest materials, silk. Silk is a biological material, a protein fibre produced through a process called spinning. A straightforward tensile testing was used to stretch silk fibres to determine physical properties such as stiffness and energy abso...
