The bulk viscosity appears in the momentum and energy equations in the form of normal stress and dilatational heat dissipation terms.
As shown in the figure, the pressure dependent viscosity simulation result is more consistent with the result of the experiment.
Shearing of paint breaks up its structure and the viscosity drops to a lower level (often much lower) than the paint had at rest.
Recently we have developed an EMD based approach using multiple independent trajectories with all-atom interaction potential to reproduce n-hexadecane (representative of GTL diesel fuel) and ndecylbenzene (representative of conventional diesel fuel) viscosity (up to 750 bar pressure and at 423 K temperature) within 12% and 8% accuracy respectively (unpublished data).
