All matter that obeys conservation laws of physics [1 - see endnote], offer

resistance to change of their shape. A fluid is differentiated from a solid by its

mode of resistance to the impressed force that purports to change the shape.

Both liquids and gases are classified as fluids due to the similarity in their

mode of resistance.

When a normal stress [2] σ (i.e. force applied per unit area normal to the

boundary of matter) prevail, both fluids and solids respond (resist) identically,

by undergoing a strain (deformation), obeying the mathematical statement

σ = E , where E is the modulus of elasticity. The relationship is called

Hooke’s Law [3].

However, when a //shear// stress latexτ (i.e. force applied per unit area tan-

gential to the boundary of matter) acts, a solid responds with a finite angular

(tangential) strain, whereas a fluid strains (deforms) continuously (in time) as

long as the shear stress prevails. The stresses in an elastic solid are propor-

tional to the finite deformation while in the fluid they are proportional to the

rate of deformation.

At the beginning of section 9 of Book 2 of his Principia [4], Sir Isaac Newton

(1642-1727) hypothesized [5] this behaviour of a fluid as ”the resistance arising

from the friction (or lack - or want - of lubricity or slipperiness) of the parts

of a fluid, other things being equal, is proportional to the velocity with which

the parts of the fluid are separated”.

Today, the above hypothesis is restated as the shear stress inside a fluid be-

ing proportional to the velocity gradient, with viscosity being the constant

of proportionality. This physical interpretation of viscosity as a constitutive

1 intended as course notes.

Fig. 1. schematic of a thought experiment to determine dynamic viscosity

property of any fluid was due to the works of Navier (1822), Poisson (1831),

St. Venant (1843), and Stokes (1845), almost two centuries after the Principia.

To introduce viscosity more rigorously, let us retrace the widely used example

of a fluid between two parallel surfaces, as shown in Fig. 1.

Now, consider a square fluid element, as shown in Fig. 2, near the bottom wall

of Fig. 1.

When subjected to a constant shear stress on the top surface (which in 2D,

is seen here as a line), the element will deform continuously in time, with (an

assumed) constant strain rate xy equivalent to the angle dθ that AD makes

while straining to AD’, over a certain time dt.

To put in simple mathematics, for DD (and CC ) being small, from Fig. 2,

ds = dy × dθ ∴ dθ = ds/dy (1)

and hence for time dt, the strain rate can be expressed as

dθ d ds du

xy = = = (2)

dt dt dt dy

Assuming the shear stress to be linearly related to the strain rate, for our fluid

element we can write

du

τxy ∼ xy ∴ τxy = µ (3)

dy

viscosity, introduced by Navier (1822). It is also known as the shear viscosity

or dynamic viscosity.

The above relation can essentially be carried over to Fig. 1, for the entire

fluid experiencing the shear stress between the parallel surfaces. This can be

visually perceived by considering another element similar to ABCD sitting

0 0

on top of ABC D and offering identical strain rate latexd in time dt, for a

identical τxy on its top surface and by repeating the building procedure until

0

we reach the top wall of Fig. 1. Then, the extended elemental line AD will

match the slanted dashed line in Fig. 1, that denotes the apparent velocity

profile. With this, we essentially have constructed a careful experiment to

determine the viscosity of the fluid subjected to simple shear [6]

The experiment, when performed with different fluids, with the restrictions 1

through 7 shown in the inset of Fig. 1, would result in the applied shear stress

(in Fig. 1, τxy is the shear stress applied in the x direction, and normal to the

y direction, i.e. on the x-z plane of the fluid) being a unique function of xy ,

the resulting strain rate.

That is, for simple fluids such as water, air etc. where the functional relation-

ship is indeed linear, we can write

U 0−U du

τxy ∼ xy (or)τxy = µ =µ (or)τxy = µ (4)

D 0−D dy

According to Eq. (4), a plot between τxy and xy would result in a straight

line passing through the origin, the slope of which indicating the viscosity µ

of the tested fluid.

When the plot yields a curve other than the straight line, the fluid tested is

said to be exhibiting non-Newtonian behaviour. The subject of non-Newtonian

fluid flow is subsumed under a larger endeavor called rheology, the science of

deformation and flow, which includes the study of the mechanical properties

of a cornucopia of materials from gases and liquids to asphalt and clay. In this

chapter we deal only with fluids exhibiting Newtonian viscosity behaviour.

A good reference point to explore more historical evolution of such fluid me-

chanics concepts is Nemenyi (1962) and Tokaty (1971).

Endnotes

(1) by this we exclude from our present discussion, plasma-like state of matter

such as bio-plasma, the aurorae or corona discharge etc. wherein (instead

of distinct solid, liquid, gas) other states may exist where the conservation

laws may not hold. See Granger (1995) for the origin of this note.

(2) For a solid and fluid at rest, stress, the mechanical pressure and the

thermodynamic pressure are identical while for a fluid in motion, stress

and pressure are different and in principle, all three of them can have

different values. See chapter 2, section 2.4-3, of White (1991), for more

details.

(3) named after the British scientist Robert Hooke (1635 -1703). He was

originally employed by Robert Boyle in 1655 to work on the Boylean air

pump and five years later discovered this law of elasticity. He was also

the first man to state publicly all matter expands when heated and air is

composed of particles separated by large distances.

(4) we consult here, two English translations that covered material from all

of the three editions of the Principia published respectively in 1687, 1713

and 1729 (see the Reference section, for details).

(5) Although Newton probably had a strong reason for putting it as an hy-

pothesis, the concept of viscosity as a fundamental property of any fluid

nevertheless emerges only from that hypothesis. In the subsequent part

of section 9, Newton then uses this hypothesis to explain the motions

generated by an infinitely long cylinder and sphere rotating in a fluid, as

a means to propound his theory of vortices.

(6) more detailed analysis of viscosity, based on Stokes (1845) method, can

be obtained from text books like Prandtl and Teitjens (1934) and White

(1991).
