This shear-thickening Revised 24 January 2018 effect can be observed using a rheometer, via distinct and abrupt increases in the viscosity of the material. Accepted 25 January 2018 Preliminary experiments qualitatively showed that the time elapsed before this occurs, termed the gelation Available online 31 January 2018 time, varied depending on the conditions used. This paper reports on a systematic study into the effects of polymer concentration, shear rate and temperature on the gelation time, to quantify any relationships that Keywords: exist between the variables and develop understanding of the gelation
