    Shear flow in a solid, liquids, granular particles ...? You need to be more specific.

    Shear generally means parallel to a plane of reference - typically a surface of some sort.

    I want to know only what it means shear flow, for example in a rectangular tube with a sphere particle. And then if there are viscosity or not.
