Apparent Viscosity

Apparent Viscosity

Apparent Viscosity

  • Apparent viscosity is the flow resistance of a non-Newtonian fluid at some arbitrary point on its stress-flow curve
  • It is a measure of the consistency of a material at a particular velocity
  • It is reported in cP (centipoise)

Units - In the SI system the apparent viscosity units are Pa s, N s/m2, or kg/m s

1 Pa s = 1 N s/m2 = 1 kg/m s = 1000 cP
