The book is meant for all who wish to know what rheology is and how it works. Rheology is a modern branch of material science whose name comes out from the Greek slogan panta rei = everything flows. Now rheology is more and more used in studying mechanical properties of biological objects. This branch of rheology is called biorheology. Physicians used it in solving problems connected with the mechanical behaviour of tissues, joints, body liquids flow etc. The book is composed as a text-book and so large attention is devoted to description of the basic terms of the theory: stress, strain, rheological classification of materials. Many solved problems and exercises are incorporated in the text. The book is written in Czech, an English abstract is added.
