On non-Newtonian Fluids with Energy Transfer

  • T. RoubíčekEmail author


The model combining incompressible Navier–Stokes’ equation in a non-Newtonian p-power-law modification and the nonlinear heat equation is considered. Existence of its (very) weak solutions is proved for p > 11/5 under mild assumptions of the temperature-dependent stress tensor by careful successive limit passage in a Galerkin approximation.
