Universal scaling law for energy and pressure in a shearing fluid.

Abstract

Using nonequilibrium molecular-dynamics simulation, we study the shear-rate dependence of pressure and potential energy in a liquid metal subjected to shear. We show that both thermodynamic properties vary according to a power law gamma[over ];{beta} of the shear rate gamma[over ] , in which the exponent beta is a simple linear function of temperature and… (More)
