new·to·ni·an flu·id

a fluid in which flow and rate of shear are always proportional to the applied stress; such fluid precisely obeys Poiseuille law. Compare: nonnewtonian fluid.

newton - derived unit of force in the SI system.
Newton disk - a disk on which there are seven colored sectors, which, when rapidly rotated, appear white.
Newton law - the attractive force between any two bodies is proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between their centers. Synonym(s): law of gravitation
Newton rings - colored rings on thin surfaces.
newtonian aberration - the difference in focus or magnification of an image arising because of a difference in the refraction of different wavelengths composing white light. Synonym(s): chromatic aberration
newtonian constant of gravitation - a universal constant relating the gravitational force, attracting two masses toward each other when they are separated by a distance.
newtonian flow - the type of flow characteristic of a newtonian fluid.
newtonian fluid - a fluid in which flow and rate of shear are always proportional to the applied stress.

From the past related studies, we found that most experiments on long bubbles are focused on the bubble contour and the use of runner of round straight tube to observe the bubbles change of the Newtonian fluid, compared with no change in the development of flow path of other shapes.
When the fluid is shear-thinning (i.e., n < 1.0), the deformation is smaller compared to the Newtonian fluid case (n = 1.0), while the deformation is larger compared to the Newtonian fluid case for the shear-thickening fluid; that is, n > 1.0.
Food grade mineral oil (FG WO 35 White Mineral Oil, Petro-Canada) is selected as the Newtonian fluid, and 0.75% solution of polyethylene oxide (POLYOX WSR-301, Dow Chemical) with the molecular weight of 4,000,000 has been chosen as the non-Newtonian fluid for the wall effects study.
