Non-Newtonian Flow

Application ID: 171

This model shows the influence of shear rate dependent viscosity on the flow of a linear polystyrene solution. For this type of flow, you can use the Carreau viscosity model. Due to rotational symmetry, it is possible to reduce the model dimensions from 3D to axisymmetric 2D.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
