Is it possible to relate Viscosity with Friction coeff?
 
Hi everyone.

I am working on a particle model, but for the first trial, I have to simulate this particles as a continuous fluid. The particles are balls of graphite of 6cm diameter. I know all the properties of this "pebbles" but I have no idea about how to convert friction parameters into viscosity in order to "convert" this properties. I thought with experiments (but I donīt have budget for this) I donīt really believe it is possible in a proper way, but boss is boss...:confused:
