We consider optimal control problems of systems governed by stationary,incompressible generalized Navier-Stokes equations with shear dependent viscosity ina two-dimensional or three-dimensional domain.We study a general class of viscosityfunctions with shear-thinning and shear-thickening behavior. We prove an existenceresult for such class of optimal control problems.
