The fully developed laminar flow of Non-Newtonian fluids in ducts has broad application in engineering. The power-law viscosity model is utilized most often in the engineering literature, but it is deficient for many fluids as it does not admit limiting Newtonian viscosities at low and high shear rates.

An early example is the use of the well-known Karman-NikuradseMartinelli three-layer model developed for fully established turbulent pipe flow of a Newtonian fluid [ in which the flow region is divided into a laminar sublayer, a buffer layer, and a turbulent core region described by the following relation: u+ = 5 l n y ' Integration of this.

Heat transfer to viscous fluids in laminar flow is a process which is frequently encountered. The fluids of commercial interest may be Newtonian or non-Newtonian. A notable feature of many such viscous fluids is that their rheological properties are.

Through the use of a novel characteristic length scale, the square root of cross-sectional area, the effect of duct shape on Nusselt number is minimized.

This chapter discusses eccentric annular ducts for laminar flow of fluids. An eccentric instead of concentric annular duct is sometimes used as a fluid-flow and heat-transfer device.

There have been a number of studies on the case of laminar flows of non-Newtonian (inelastic) fluids in ducts. Hwang and Hong [1] analytically and experimentally investigated the influence of variable viscosity on the laminar heat transfer in a square duct for the constant wall temperature condition with ethylene glycol.

In nonideal fluid dynamics, the Hagen–Poiseuille equation, also known as the Hagen–Poiseuille law, Poiseuille law or Poiseuille equation, is a physical law that gives the pressure drop in an incompressible and Newtonian fluid in laminar flow flowing through a long cylindrical pipe of constant cross section.

It can be successfully applied to air flow in lung alveoli, or the flow through a. Heat transfer with non-Newtonian fluids is a vast topic given the wide range of fluids and flows of interest, and it cannot be covered in its vastness in this chapter. Internal flows are quite relevant in the scope of non-Newtonian fluid flows and heat transfer, with the pipe flow playing a leading role.

For laminar flow, μ ap has the property that it is the viscosity of a Newtonian fluid having the same flow characteristic as the non-Newtonian fluid when subjected to the same value of wall shear stress. In particular, this corresponds to the same volumetric flow rate. Sun-Nan Hong and John C.
