5.2.5 Example B: Non-Newtonian Fluids Plots

Course subject(s) 5. Laminar flow

Try to sketch the shear stress against the velocity gradient for the Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids yourself. What are the differences? Furthermore, define the apparent viscosity and sketch this apparent viscosity against the shear stress or shear rate. What are the differences between Newtonian and Non-Newtonian Fluids in this plot?


See video for plots.
