To increase utilization of Korean yam, the rheological properties of gelatinized yam (Dioscorea aimadoimo) starch solutions at various concentrations $(1{\sim}5%)$ and temperature $(30{\sim}60^{\circ}C)$ were investigated. The rheological behavior of gelatinized yam starch solutions was illustrated by power-law model and Casson equation and exhibited pseudoplastic behavior with yield stress. The pseudoplasticity of starch solutions increased largly concentration of starch increased. As the temperature increased from $30^{\circ}C$ to $60^{\circ}C$, the dependency of starch concentration decreased, B were decreased from 0.40449 to 0.39352. The activation energy of flow of gelatinized yam starch solutions were increased from 4.1415 to $5.45329{\times}10^6\;J/kg{\cdot}mol$ by increasing starch concentration from 1% to 5%.
