When doing research for shear-thinning. I come across to many interpreations.
- Shear-thinning is the non-Newtonian behavior of fluids whose viscosity decreases under shear strain.
- In other terms, the fluid possesses some kind of elasticity.
- This stems from some very complicated non-covalent Polymer-Particle interactions.
Are all of the above statements correct? If so, can you name a Polymer-Particle interaction that causes shear-thinning to happen?
