Non-Newtonian fluid model

  1. May 3, 2012 #1
    I need to make a simple model of a strain-hardening fluid flow, basically to find shear force on a wall. I'm looking at the Ostwald model

    but I can't find any values for "K" for any material. I don't really care too much what material I'm looking at, I just want to at least get an idea of what it typically looks like. Does anyone know of any resource with tables of some K values?
