The oscillation frequencies produced by oscillation-type density meters during the density measurements suffer damping due to the viscosity of Newtonian liquids. The effect of viscoelastic behaviour of non-Newtonian liquids in the damping of these oscillations is still not known. So, 7 viscoelastic liquids were rheologically characterized, resorting to a rheometer, and their density measured in order to provide a deeper insight into the damping effects produced by these types of fluids. To do so, oscillatory data was related with the obtained density deviations. The results of this study will give further insights for the knowledge of the measuring behaviour of these density meters when measuring viscoelastic fluids, one of the scopes of the EMPIR Project 17RPT02-rhoLiq.
