Viscosity of non-Newtonian Fluid

Hi there,

How can we use other formulations for viscosity of non-Newtonian fluid in the code? 

Thanks a lot in advance for possible response.


  • Hi,

    We took a very open approach when coding the non-Newtonian code.

    Thus, If you would like to use other formulations on the non-Newtonian code you simply have to modify 5-10 lines on the "GetEta_Effective" function.

    Any constitutive equation should/could be implemented there, just compile, choose your vel gradiant operator and you are ready to go (in principle).



  • PS: Let me know how it goes as this is my.. bread and butter!

  • I really appreciate it.

    I just started to learn the code.

    Sure will do.
