N. Marsh 31 proposed a simple, rugged funnel as a means of measuring the apparent viscosity of muds in the field. N. Herrick32 emphasized the distinct difference between the flow behavior of muds and liquids. He pointed out that the apparent viscosity as measured with the Stormer viscometer could not be used to estimate the pressure required to pump mud through pipes. Measurements made with a pressure efflux viscometer, however, could be used. The introduction of new and greatly improved drilling equipment in the early 1930s33 stimulated the investigation of the role mud plays in drilling performance.

In a field study, a subsurface pressure gauge Development of Drilling Fluids Technology 49 was either attached to the bottom of the drill pipe or left in the hole while the pipe was withdrawn. E. Cannon41 reported that the pressure reduction, or "swabbing action," was sufficient to cause a blowout with muds that developed high gel strength on standing.
