Dynamic Shear Viscosity

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fluid Dynamics

Dynamic shear viscosity, abbreviated as \(\mu\) (Greek symbol mu), is the resistance to shearing flow of a fluid, where adjacent layers move parallel to each other in different ways.

 

Dynamic Shear Viscosity Formula

\(\large{ \mu = \frac { F \; y }{ A \; u }   }\)   

Where:

\(\large{ \mu }\)  (Greek symbol mu) = dynamic shear viscosity

\(\large{ A }\) = area of each plate

\(\large{ F }\) = applied force

\(\large{ y }\) = separation distance

\(\large{ u }\) = speed of movement
