solving creeping flow with viscosity as function of pressure
 
I would like to calculate the pressure distribution in an thin oil film. The viscosity would have to be a function of the pressure (and eventually the temperature). I have a model of the oil (equation of state). I think the icoFoam solver would be a good startpoint. How do I add the physics of the oil?

Is there anyone that can help me with an example ('tutorial') for this case. As a novice foamer I'm not able to create my own solvers (yet?)

I've got OF-1.5 installed on a Mac.
