Bingham fluids have a material property called the yield stress. If body forces and stresses acting on the material are not larger than the yield stress, there is no flow. Using variational methods and optimal control techniques, we will find the minimum yield stress such that there is no flow in a given geometry. The interested student will have a background in optimization and numerical analysis.
