Fluids having viscosity independent of shear stress. Since these types of fluids behave according to Newton's model, they are called “Newtonian fluids”.
Viscosity of some fluids may change according to the shear stress applied. These types of fluids are called “Non-newtonian fluids”. Non-newtonian fluids exhibit shear- thinning   (Pseudoplastic), shear-thickening (Dilatant) or plastic flow behaviours.
