This value depends upon the shape measurement method: with KSB (Kaiser, Squires & Broadhurst 1995) and RRG, it depends upon the size of the Gaussian weight function.

There is no equivalent of Squire’s theorem for generalized Newtonian fluids but some authors have performed several numerical tests for large range of axial and transverse wave numbers (α and β respectively) for different non-linear viscosity functions µ( ˙γ ), see [24–27].
