dispersions show Bingham flow which is characterized by a σ-D
diagram as shown. At rates of shear greater than that at point A, the following relation
is called the Bingham yield stress
is the differential viscosity
is the shear rate
is the average of three normal stress
components if the deformation is purely dilatational.
