Can FENE-P model describe the shear-thinning or shear-thickening flow?

    $\begingroup$ C'mon, give a bit more information here! What does FENE-P mean? What's a "shear-thickening flow"? Making your question accesible and showing your research increases the chance of upvotes and makes answerers more likely to invest time into an answer! $\endgroup$ – ACuriousMind Jun 16 '15 at 19:13
  • $\begingroup$ I've added a link to FENE-P's wikipedia page; if you feel it insufficient in detail, please modify the link to a source more appropriate. $\endgroup$ – Kyle Kanos Jun 16 '15 at 19:45
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, then I think I ran into a wrong place. These are questions too specific. If you are expert in non-Newtonian flow, it's would be an easy question to answer. Shear-thickening flow means the viscosity increases with the shear. $\endgroup$ – jengmge Jun 16 '15 at 22:55
  • $\begingroup$ @jengmge: I don't believe this is the "wrong place" for such a question. The issue is that, to non-experts (more appropriately, non-practitioners), the question does not appear to contain enough information to be accessible to the future visitors to the site; hence ACuriousMind's comment. $\endgroup$ – Kyle Kanos Jun 17 '15 at 13:23

FENE models are a class of model to describe a viscoelastic fluid flow, . Although these flows exhibit shear-dependent flow rates, they are not equivalent to shear-thickening or shear-thinning flows.
