RHEOS.jl - A Julia Package for Rheology Data Analysis. Rheology is the science of deformation and flow, with a focus on materials that do not exhibit simple linear elastic or viscous Newtonian behaviours. Rheology plays an important role in the empirical characterisation of soft viscoelastic materials commonly found in the food and cosmetics industry, as well as in biology and bioengineering. A broad range of theoretical tools exist to extract material parameters and interpret them thanks to data analysis and/or physical modelling. RHEOS (RHEology, Open-Source) is a software package designed to make the analysis of rheological data simpler, faster and more reproducible. RHEOS is currently limited to the broad family of linear viscoelastic models. A particular strength of the library is its ability to handle rheological models containing fractional derivatives which have demonstrable utility for the modelling of biological materials but have hitherto remained in relative obscurity-possibly due to their mathematical and computational complexity. RHEOS is written in Julia, which greatly assists achievement of our aims as it provides excellent computational efficiency and approachable syntax. RHEOS is fully documented and has extensive testing coverage. It should be noted that RHEOS is not an optimisation package. It builds on another optimisation package, NLopt, by adding a large number of abstractions and functionality specific to the exploration of viscoelastic data.
