shear dependent viscosity

For systems showing non-Newtonian behaviour when measured in steady simple shear, a coefficientη equal to σ D at a given value of the shear rateD, where σ is the stress; η 0 is the limiting viscosity at zero shear rate, and η ∞ the limiting viscosity at infinite shear rate; [ η 0 ] is the limit of intrinsic viscosity at zero shear.
