Conceptual models of the climate : 2003 program of study, Non-Newtonian geophysical fluid dynamics
MetadataShow full item record
Non-Newtonian fluids occur commonly in our world. These fluids, such as toothpaste, saliva, oils, mud and lava, exhibit a number of behaviors that are different from Newtonian fluids and have a number of additional material properties. In general, these differences arise because the fluid has a microstructure that influences the flow. In section 2 we will present a collection of some of the interesting phenomena arising from flow nonlinearities, the inhibition of stretching, elastic effects and normal stresses. In section 3 we will discuss a variety of devices for measuring material properties, a process known as rheometry.

Billen, Magali I.; Hirth, Greg (American Geophysical Union, 2005-10-08)The effect of rheology on the evolution of the slab-tip during subduction initiation is analyzed using 2-D numerical flow models. Experimentally determined flow laws have both strong temperature- and stress-dependence, ...
Magmatic focusing to mid-ocean ridges : the role of grain-size variability and non-Newtonian viscosity Turner, Andrew J.; Katz, Richard F.; Behn, Mark D.; Keller, Tobias (John Wiley & Sons, 2017-12-06)Melting beneath mid-ocean ridges occurs over a region that is much broader than the zone of magmatic emplacement that forms the oceanic crust. Magma is focused into this zone by lateral transport. This focusing has typically ...
