Newtons Law of Viscosity:

At steady state, F is
required to maintain
velocity V, then the force
can be expressed as,

F V

A Y

Fig.1.1-1: The buildup to the steady, laminar velocity profile for a fluid contained
between two plates.
Newtons Law of Viscosity

F V
The force should be proportional to the area and the velocity
and inversely proportional to distance between the plates
A Y
Where is the proportionality constant, defined to be the viscosity

F
yx Force in the x direction on a unite area perpendicular to
A y direction

## The relationship becomes,

vx
yx
y
The shearing force per unite area is proportional to the negative of the
velocity gradient, is often called Newtons law of viscosity.

## yx Flux of x-momentum in y direction

vx
Velocity gradient is the driving force for momentum transport

Non Newtonian Fluids:

Newtonian fluid:

y nonpolymeric liquids

Types of N-N fluids:

a) Time independent
b) Time dependent
c) Viscoilastic

## Time independent fluids:

Fluid with yield shear stress
Fluid without yield shear stress
v x
Relationship between yx and can be expressed by two parameter or
three parameter models:
y
Two parameter model:

Bignham model:
vx
yx 0 0 if yx 0
y
vx
0 if yx 0
y

If yield stress 0 is not reached, matter remain rigid. If yield stress is applied,

flows quite like Newtonian. The positive sign is used when yx is positive and
the negative sign is used when yx is negative. A substance that follows this
two parameter model is called Bingham Plastic.
This model is applicable for fine suspension and paste.
Oswald-de Waele Model:

n 1
dvx dvx
yx m
dy dy
This two parameter equation is also know as power law.

n 1, dialatant
for n 1, psedoplastic
n 1 newtonian
The deviation from unity indicates the degree of deviation from Newtonian
behavior.
Three parameter model:

Ellis Model:

dvx
dy

0 1 yx
1
yx

## This model contains three adjustable parameters, 0 , 1 and . If 1,

the model approaches Newtonians law for small yx , on the other hand,
if 1 Newtons law is approached for large yx .

## This model is very flexible and as special cases

for 1 0, Newtons Law
for 0 0, Power law
Three parameter model:

## The Reiner-Philippoff model:

It contains three adjustable parameters, , 0 and s . The Newtonian
behavior has often been observed at very low and very high shear rates.
