The dependence of the strain rate on the Hugoniot stress and the effective viscosity is derived for steady wave propagation, by considering the balance between viscous and driving forces in the steady wave. The strain rate in elastic-plastic solids is shown to vary as the fourth power of the Hugoniot stress, which is in agreement with experimental data.

    It is demonstrated that, for the slow advance of a viscous liquid onto a previously dry substrate, the well-known moving contact line paradox is alleviated for liquids exhibiting power-law shear-thinning behavior. In contrast to previous models that allow contact-line motion, it is no longer...
