Abstract We describe the curves of viscosity and flow curves of structured systems. It is shown that the complex rheological behavior can be explained within the framework of a generalized model of the flow. The reason for non-Newtonian flow of dispersed and polymer systems is due to the destruction and formation of aggregates of particles (macromolecules) in shear flow.
Keywords: flow curves, curves of viscosity, non-Newtonian behavior
