There is a class of flows of the simple fluid, equivalent to the simple shearing flow, for which the kinematics and the stress can be completely determined. (Ericksen, Viscoelasticity - Phenomenological Aspects, Academic Press, New York 1960) Ericksen [21] called them laminar shear flows, but the current term used to describe these flows is viscometric flows (Coleman, Arch. Rat. Mech. Anal. 9, 273–300, 1962) [16]. We review this class of flows here.
