By introducing a state variable, we construct a phenomenological fluid dynamical model of a dilatant fluid, i.e., a dense mixture of fluid and granules that shows severe shear thickening. We demonstrate that the fluid shows shear thickening oscillation, namely, the fluid flow oscillates owning to the coupling between the fluid dynamics and the internal dynamics of state. We also demonstrate that the jamming leads to a peculiar response to an external impact on the fluid.
