In this work, measurement of the flow field around a rotating sphere has been used to obtain the material parameters of a second-order Rivlin-Ericksen fluid. Experiments were carried out with a Laser-Doppler anemometer to obtain the velocity distribution and usingGiesekus' analysis, the material parameters for the second-order fluid were obtained.
