Flow behaviour

Looking at two parallel plates with the surface A and the distance y, displaced against each other as a result of a force Faction with a velocity v, a force Freaction opposes to this displacement and increases with increasing dynamic viscosity of the medium between the two plates. (fig 1) The ratio of F to A is called shear stress τ. τ = F / A The shear stress τ... go to >> Flow behaviour
