NON-NEWTONIAN FLUIDS
Fluid systems may be non-ideal in two ways:
1. The viscosity may depend on shear rate

2. The viscosity may depend on time

Some (many) may have both

Newtonian fluids, viscosity does not depend on
the shear rate. Fluid begins to flow when ever
a shear stress is applied

SHEAR-DEPENDENT FLUIDS
Plastic (Bingham Plastic): some finite
shear stress must be applied before the
material will flow. This minimum stress
required is known as the yield stress.
Examples include margarine, whipped
toppings, mayonnaise, or catsup.

MODELS FOR SHEAR

as the shear rate to some power

where K is the consistency index, and n is
the flow behavior index.

TIME DEPENDENT VISCOUS
BEHAVIOR
For some fluids, the shear stress may
change at a given shear rate as time
passes. This is another form of non-
Newtonian behavior.

Thixotropic: shear stress decreases with
time at constant shear rate; alternately,
the apparent viscosity decreases with
time. The change is reversible; the fluid
rebuilds itself once shearing is
removed. Includes some starch paste
gels.

Shear Thinning: apparent viscosity
decreases with time; however, the
change is irreversible-the material is
less viscous once the shearing is
removed. Foods more often behave as
shear thinning materials than as true
thixotropic materials.

Rheopectic: shear stress increases with
time at constant shear rate; the
apparent viscosity increases with time.
The change is reversible. Rare in food
systems.

Shear Thickening: shear stress
increases with time at constant shear
rate; the apparent viscosity increases
with time. The change is irreversible-
the material stays thick once shear is
removed.

MOLECULAR INTERPRETATIONS
OF VISCOSITY
Viscosity and Energy Dissipation:
viscosity represents the resistance to flow
introduced by frictional forces in the fluid.
Some of the energy is dissipated as heat.
Increased heat does in fact represent
increased motion at the molecular level,
but this motion is random, not directed.

Stress (F/A) along
upper layer
Some molecules move along
upper layer. Some move to lower
levels transf erring momentum to
molecules there.. Some of that
energy becomes directed in the
flow direction. Some becomes
randomized into thermal motion
NON-IDEAL BEHAVIOR
Shear Dependency. Shear dependency
usually arises in high molecular weight
polymers (xanthan gum, starches). One
explanation is that at low shear rates,
interchain entanglements greatly increase the
viscosity. As shear rate increases , the
individual chains become more oriented
along the lines of flow.

Low shear-
polymer entanglement
High shear-
polymer entanglement

Bingham plastic may be due to a high
degree of polymer entanglement
forming a pseudo-gel. The solvent
cannot flow through this structure until a
sufficient shear force is exerted to
break up the structure. In systems with
aggregated particles, pseudoplastic
behavior may occur when increased
shear causes the particles to separate.

Dilatancy: at low shear conditions, particles
are closely packed. The void spaces
between particles is minimal and are filled
with solvent (water). As shear stress
increases, the total volume increases,
increasing the volume of void space.
However, the solvent doesnt fill all of the void
space, creating a dryness which increases
the resistance to shearing stress.

No/Low Shear
High Shear
Time-Dependence
Similar arguments can be made for fluids that
become more or less viscous over time at
constant shear rate. For example, for a
thixotropic fluid, molecules become more and
more disentangled over time, thus leading to
a decrease in viscosity. If the shear force is
removed, the molecules may reaggregate or
become entangled again over time.
