Prediction of Newtonian viscosity of complex fluids from high strain rate molecular simulation was discussed. The simulations were performed at atmospheric pressure enabled accurate prediction of viscosity for state points in the giga-pascal range with the help of a scaling relation. The scaling relation was found to save computational time and was applicable to fluids exhibiting power law behavior in the shear-thinning region.
