## Abstract

We have seen some of the classical constitutive equations introduced in the last three centuries, and explored the general formulation of constitutive equations in the last chapter. There, we mention that the general constitutive principles should be taken as guidelines only; they should emerge from the physics of the fluids’ microstructures.
