Compressible generalized Newtonian fluids Academic Article uri icon


  • We systematically derive models that would be suitable to describe flows of compressible fluids with the material moduli depending on the symmetric part of the velocity gradient and temperature, within the context of a thermodynamic framework that has been quite successful in developing models to describe the response of bodies that produce entropy while undergoing processes. © 2010 Birkhäuser Verlag Basel/Switzerland.
