Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the distributed parameter properties of non-Newtonian fluids and a proposal for identifying them. A low cost setup is described along with a proposed methodology protocol. The paper introduces the problem of moving from a linear framework of fluid properties towards a nonlinear one and motivates the choice for lumped nonlinear parameter model structures. It follows identification using nonlinear least squares in various liquids. The results obtained suggest that parameters of the proposed fractional order impedance model are susceptible to changes in density as being one important feature of non-Newtonian fluids. Further use of these findings across disciplines is given in the conclusion section of the paper.
