Study of the temperature effect of shear thickening fluid

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • This paper presents the study of temperature

    effect on a shear thickening fluid made of ethylene glycol and

    fumed silica with a 20% weight fraction. Four typical

    temperatures, ranging from 20˚C to 80˚C, were selected to

    study the shear rate dependence of viscosity. The

    temperature tests show that the high temperature increases

    the critical shear rate and lower the shear thickening ratio. A

    viscosity function is proposed to represent the three

    characteristic regions in typical shear thickening fluid and to

    predict the viscosity at different temperatures.
