Sistem non-Newton

Non-Newtonian bodies

adalah zat-zat yang tidak mengikuti persamaan

aliran Newton; dispersi heterogen cairan dan padatan seperti larutan

koloid, emulsi, suspensi cair, salep dan produk-produk serupa


. Jika bahan-

bahan non-Newton dianalisis dalam suatu viscometer putar dan hasilnya

diplot, diperoleh berbagai kurva konsistensi yang menggambarkan adanya

tiga kelas aliran yakni;

plastis, pseudoplastis, dan dilatan.

Aliran Plastis
Aliran Plastis

kurva aliran plastis tidak melalui titik (0,0) tapi memotong sumbu shearing stress (atau akan memotong, jika bagian lurus dari kurva tersebut diekstrapolasikan ke sumbu) pada suatu titik tertentu yang dikenal dengan harga yield. Bingham bodies tidak akan mengalir sampai shearing stress dicapai sebesar yield value tersebut. Pada harga stress di bawah harga yield value, zat bertindak seperti bahan elastic. Ahli rheologi menggolongkan Bingham bodie sebagai suatu bahan yang mempunyai/memperlihatkan yield value, seperti halnya zat padat. Sedang zat-zat yang mulai mengalir pada shearing stress terkecil didefinisikan sebagai cairan. Yield value adalah suatu sifat yang penting dari disperse-

dispersi tertentu.

A non-Newtonian fluid is a fluid whose flow properties differ in any way from those of Newtonian fluids. Most commonly the viscosity of non- Newtonian fluids is not independent of shear rate or shear rate history. However, there are some non-Newtonian fluids with shear-independent viscosity, that nonetheless exhibit normal stress-differences or other non-Newtonian behavior. Many salt solutions and molten polymers are non- Newtonian fluids, as are many commonly found substances such as ketchup, custard, toothpaste, starch suspensions, paint, blood, and shampoo. In a Newtonian fluid, the relation between the shear stress and the shear rate is linear, passing through the origin, the constant of proportionality being the coefficient of viscosity. In a non- Newtonian fluid, the relation between the shear stress and the shear rate is different, and can even be time-dependent. Therefore a constant coefficient of viscosity cannot be defined.

Although the concept of viscosity is commonly used to characterize a material, it can be inadequate to describe the mechanical behavior of a substance, particularly non-Newtonian fluids. They are best studied through several other rheological properties which relate the relations between the stress and strain rate tensors under many different flow conditions, such as oscillatory shear, or extensional flow which are measured using different devices or rheometers. The properties are better studied using tensor-valued constitutive equations, which are common in the field of continuum mechanics.

[edit]Shear thickening fluids

Shear thickening fluids are also used in all wheel drive systems utilising a viscous coupling unit for power transmission.

[edit]Shear thinning fluid

A familiar example of the opposite, a shear thinning fluid, or pseudoplastic fluid, is paint: one wants the paint to flow readily off the brush when it is being applied to the surface being painted, but not to drip excessively.

[edit]Bingham plastic

There are fluids which have a linear shear stress/shear strain relationship which require a finite yield stress before they begin to flow (the plot of shear stress against shear strain does not pass through the origin). These fluids are called Bingham plastics. Several examples are clay suspensions, drilling mud, toothpaste, mayonnaise, chocolate, and mustard.


There are also fluids whose strain rate is a function of time. Fluids that require a gradually increasing shear stress to maintain a constant strain rate are referred to as rheopectic. An opposite case of this, is a fluid that thins out with time and requires a decreasing stress to maintain a constant strain rate (thixotropic).

An inexpensive, non-toxic example of a non-Newtonian fluid is a suspension of starch (e.g. cornflour) in water, sometimes called "oobleck" or "ooze" (2 parts corn starch to 1 part water). [7][8] Uncooked imitation custard, being a suspension of primarily cornflour, has the same properties. The name "oobleck" is derived from the children's


Main article: Flubber (material)

Flubber is a non-Newtonian fluid, easily made from polyvinyl alcohol based glues and borax, that flows under low stresses, but breaks under higher stresses and pressures. This combination of fluid-like and solid-like properties makes it a Maxwell solid. Its behavior can also be described as being viscoplastic orgelatinous. [9]

[edit]Chilled caramel topping

Another example of this is chilled caramel ice cream topping. The sudden application of forcefor example by stabbing the surface with a finger, or rapidly inverting the container holding it—leads to the fluid behaving like a solid rather than a liquid. This is the "shear thickening" property of this non-Newtonian fluid. More gentle treatment, such as slowly inserting a spoon, will leave it in its liquid state. Trying to jerk the spoon back out again, however, will trigger the return of the temporary solid state. A person moving quickly and applying sufficient force with their feet can literally walk across such a liquid.

[edit]Silly Putty

Main article: Silly Putty

Silly Putty is a silicone polymer based suspension which will flow, bounce, or break depending on strain rate.


Ketchup is a shear thinning fluid. [3] Shear thinning means that the fluid viscosity decreases over time given a constant shear. In other words, fluid motion is initially difficult to start, but once flowing will continue to do so freely.
