Shear Stress of Fluid
The rate of change of velocity based on the perpendicular distance from the fixed point is directly inversely correlated with shear stress between two fluid layers (Velocity Gradient or rate of deformation or strain rate)
τ α du/dy
τ = μ du/dy
μ = τ/du/dy
where, τ – Shear stress and du/dy - strain rate or velocity gradient.
For fluid the shear stress is directly proportional to - (a)strain rate (b)size (c)strain (d)shape
Shear stress for fluids is inversely correlated with strain rate. For a given pressure and temperature, the ratio of shear stress to rate is constant and is known as the viscosity or coefficient of viscosity.
