Value of viscosity of liquid at an arbitrary velocity is important in many manufacturing processes, method of rotation is used commonly to measure it at a scheduled velocity, but it is not convenient to measure it at an arbitrary velocity. A method based on cylinder rotation is presented in the paper and it is used to measure it at an arbitrary velocity. Derivation of mathematical models is executed and a simulation is carried in Matlab. Results show that the velocity of the cylinder in the liquid attenuates by exponential law and it is in accordance with mathematical models. Error analysis indicates that that the generation of them mainly results from unsuited velocity of cylinder, slippage between the cylinder and the liquid and misalignment between the cylinder and the cup.
