Cross Fluid

A Cross fluid is a type of generalized Newtonian fluid whose viscosity depends upon shear rate according to the following equation:

mu_{operatorname{eff}}(dot gamma) = frac {mu_0}{1 + ({frac {mu_0 dot gamma} {tau ^ *}})^{1-n} }


is viscosity as a function of shear rate,
, and n are coefficients.

At low shear rate, cross fluids behave as Newtonian fluids and at high shear rate as power-law fluids.

Famous quotes containing the words fluid and/or cross:

    On and on eternally
    Shall your altered fluid run,
    Bud and bloom and go to seed;
    But your singing days are done;
    Edna St. Vincent Millay (1892–1950)

    In ancient times—’twas no great loss—
    They hung the thief upon the cross:
    But now, alas!—I say’t with grief—
    They hang the cross upon the thief.
    —Anonymous. “On a Nomination to the Legion of Honour,” from Aubrey Stewart’s English Epigrams and Epitaphs (1897)
