Viscosity of a fluid is known to affect the reflection of shear waves from a solid/fluid interface. In this paper, we will discuss an impedance plane wave model to explain the influence of the change in density and viscosity of a fluid which is in contact with a solid. This modeled is used in the development of sensors for measuring the viscosity of the fluid. Newtonian and Non-Newtonian fluids were considered. The experimental results is compared with model simulated data to provide insight into the melting of glass. The sensitivity and precision of the measurements as well as the range/limitation of measurements will be interpreted through the use of the shear impedance model. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
