The investigations of viscosity in the flow of dusty plasma liquid are presented in this entry. The dependence of the shear viscosity coefficient of the liquid on the external force causing the flow of dusty plasma liquid and on the pressure of plasma-generating gas is studied. The dynamics of dust particles in an unperturbed liquid dusty plasma medium as a function of coupling parameter are investigated. It is assumed that the non-Newtonian behavior of dusty plasma liquid may be due to the existence of crystal-like dust clusters.
