Power law fluids


We study non-stationary motions of power law fluids in a bounded Lipschitz domain. Based on the solenoidal Lipschitz truncation from Chapter 6 we show the existence of weak solutions to the generalized Navier–Stokes system for p>2dd+2Image. Our approach completely avoids the appearance of the pressure function.
