Comparison of Three Constitutive Models for the Analysis of Laminar Magnetorheological Fluid Flows
In the current paper, three different constitutive models are employed for the analysis of laminar MRF (MagnetoRheological Fluid) flows between two parallel plates. The capability of a recently constructed non-convex constitutive model is compared with those of widely used Bingham model and Herschel-Bulkley model. The comparison among simulated flow velocity distributions and shear stress - shear strain rate characteristics based on different models is presented. It is shown that the non-convex consitutive model outperformance the other two models.
