Line 61 viscosityModel.C shoul
Line 61 viscosityModel.C should be
to comply with the standard definition of shear rate used in the Non-newtonian viscosity formulations:
SR = sqrt(0.5 * D:D)
where D = grad(U) + grad(U).T()
Not all shear-dependent viscos
Not all shear-dependent viscosity models use this definition of shear-rate and the one I originally implemented was defined in term of mag(grad(U)) which is what I implemented. Models defined in terms of other shear-rate definitions can be implemented in a way which over-rides the default simple function. Alternatively the form of the shear-rate could be made run-time selectable.
