The rheological significance of a state of hydrostatic tension was investigated. A method for measuring the limiting low shear viscosity of liquids under tension was developed. The ability of nine liquids to withstand tension was verified, and the magnitudes of tension achievable through different methods were compared. The use of viscosity data from liquids under tension to more accurately determine the initial pressure viscosity coefficient was investigated. The continuity of the pressure viscosity coefficient across absolute zero pressure was verified.
