Viscosity (Log)

This result shows the viscosity distribution of the plastic at current time step.

 

Viscosity is an important property in fluids which can be considered as the resistance of flow.

 

In polymers, melt temperature and shear rate will influence the value of viscosity. The viscosity is constant at low shear rate, and decreases with increasing shear rate. Also, the viscosity decreases as temperature increases.
