Cross fluid

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

μ e f f ( γ ˙ ) = μ 0 1 + ( μ 0 γ ˙ τ ) 1 n

where

μ e f f ( γ ˙ ) is viscosity as a function of shear rate, μ 0 , τ and n are coefficients.

At low shear rate ( μ 0 γ ˙ τ ), cross fluids behave as Newtonian fluids and at high shear rate ( μ 0 γ ˙ τ ) as power-law fluids.
