Measurements were carried out in the following modes: 1) linear growth of shear stress, when [tau] changes by the law [tau] = at (a is assigned constant rate of shear stress increasing), value of shear deformation [epsilon] is measured; this mode allows to define deformation curves and yield stress; 2) a creep mode: initially constant shear stress t is applied, it is maintained some time, then [tau] = 0 is established, dependence of strain [epsilon] on time [tau] is fixed; 3) sinusoidal tangential oscillations of the top plate with constant frequency f = 10 Hz and amplitude of deformation ea in a range of values 0.
