Consideration is given to the flow of viscous and elastico-viscous liquids contained between two infinite parallel plates which rotate with the same angular velocity Ω about axes normal to the plates but not coincident. In the viscous case, it is shown that a simple exact solution of the relevant equations can be obtained. In the elastico-viscous case, certain formulae are derived which should facilitate the interpretation of experimental results obtained from the Maxwell orthogonal rheometer.
