Squeezing flows occur in a variety of industrial applications, including lubrication, printing, and sheet molding. Squeezing flow also occurs in the region between two bubbles growing in a foaming liquid. An experiment designed to study squeezing flow has been designed, and data indicate that the force-time behavior cannot be modeled using purely viscous, non-Newtonian constitutive equations. The force resisting squeezing first rises above the purely viscous level, and then falls below the viscous level as time increases.
