The flow field of a linear viscoelastic material in the orthogonal rheometer, taking fluid inertia into account, has been studied theoretically and an exact solution is given. The flow field of a Newtonian liquid is included in this solution as a special case. The forces on the plates are readily deduced from this solution. The paper concludes with an energy consideration.
