A new continuous ultrasonic viscometer employing a pulsed resonant exponentially damped magnetostrictive strip is described and treated theoretically. Properties of viscoelastic materials affecting the propagation of transverse elastic waves are derived and are related to the response of the viscometer. Typical applications of the use of the ultrasonic viscometer are presented.
