Shear cells based on the constant volume approach are a promising alternative to the conventional constant load techniques. The objectives of this research were to evaluate the dynamic yield locus tester (DYLT) based on the constant volume approach, and the computer controlled Jenkie tester (CCJT) based on the constant load approach. This was done by comparing the flow parameters obtained using the two techniques for BCR limestone, glass fibers, ground silica, microcrystalline cellulose, and wheat flour. Test results showed the flow parameters obtained using the DYLT and the CCJT were comparable at a level of significance of 0.05 for BCR limestone, glass fibers, ground silica, and microcrystalline cellulose. There were significant differences (p>0.05) between the flow parameters of the DYLT and CCJT for wheat flour.
