4.14.2.2 Carreau Model

The material type for a Carreau model [22] is “Carreau”. The following material parameters must be defined:
<mu0> shear viscosity at zero shear rate, [P t]
<mui> shear viscosity at infinite shear rate, [P t]
<lambda> time constant [t]
<n> power-law exponent
The viscous shear stress for this material model is where Here, is the engineering shear rate.
Example:
<viscous type="Carreau">
	<mu0>0.056</mu0>
	<mui>0.0035</mui>
	<lambda>3.3</lambda>
	<n>0.36</n>
</viscous>
