Low Rate Viscosity#
Low Rate Viscosity = CONSTANT <float> [M/Lt]
Description / Usage#
This card is used to specify the model for the low-rate viscosity parameter for the POWER_LAW, CARREAU, CARREAU_WLF, BINGHAM, SUSPENSION, THERMAL, CURE, EPOXY, FILLED_EPOXY, POWERLAW_SUSPENSION and CARREAU_SUSPENSION model options of the Liquid Constitutive Equation card. This is also the reference viscosity value in the HERSCHEL_BULKLEY constitutive equation.
Definitions of the input parameters are as follows:
Name of the model for the low-rate viscosity.
Name of the model for level-set dependent low-rate viscosity. Allows for this viscosity level to be a function of the level-set field. Specifically used for changing the low-rate viscosity from one constant value on the negative side of the interface to another constant value on the positive side. The model requires three floats:
The following is a sample card that sets the low rate viscosity to 10:
Low Rate Viscosity = CONSTANT 10.
