How do you simulate highly viscous grease in a shaft/bearing configuration?

Question asked by Walter Brokowski on Feb 9, 2017

I have a .3750 ground shaft rotating in a housing that has .001 clearance. the clearance is filled with highly viscous grease 192,000cst.

how do I use SW simulation to simulate the slip torque when the housing is held and the shaft is turned at a constant RPM.

It would be great if we could log the torque data and see it in a graph.

The length of engagement is 4.75 inches
