We report on rheometry measurements to characterize the critical behavior in two model shear thickening suspensions: cornstarch in water and glass spheres in oil. The slope of the shear thickening part of the viscosity curve is found to increase dramatically with packing fraction and diverge at a critical packing fraction phi(c). The magnitude of the viscosity and the yield stress are also found to have scalings that diverge at phi(c). We observe shear thickening as long as the yield stress is… CONTINUE READING
