The objective of this research is to investigate the concentration effect on the rheological properties of different bentonite suspensions. Experiments were performed with different bentonite type and concentrations and the results were evaluated by different rheological models (Bingham plastic, Power law, Sisco, Casson, Herchel Bulkley and Robertson Stiff) describing the flow of non-Newtonian fluids by mathematical equations in terms of shear rate and shear stress.
