Abstract: A technique for processing experimental data and an algorithm for its implementation to determine the parameters of a
rheological model of a viscoplastic fluid, which demonstrates the manifestation of the "hardening" effect, are proposed. In order to
test the algorithm's operability, numerical experiments were carried out with sets of randomly generated "pseudo-experimental" data
with a predetermined maximum relative error. The analysis of the influence of the maximum relative error of the initial “pseudoexperimental” data on the value of the relative error of the parameters of the rheological model determined during numerical
experiments was carried out. Based on the results of the conducted experiments, it is shown that the relative error in determining the
parameters of the rheological model is commensurate with the maximum error of the generated “pseudo-experimental” data. An
example of processing experimental data for a suspension of calcium carbonate particles based on polyethylene glycol is considered.
