The flow field of a linear viscoelastic fluid in the balance rheometer, taking fluid inertia into account, has been studied theoretically and an exact solution is given. The flow field of a Newtonian fluid is included in this solution as a special case. The forces and couples on the hemispheres are readily deduced from this solution.
