• S-ST-1-16 Modeling Pressure Drop and Heat Transfer for a Pseudoplastic Fluid

    May 19, 2021
    HTRI conducted tests with ketchup in a double-pipe heat exchanger in the Tubeside Single-phase Unit (TSPU). Detailed analysis of rheological reports and results of adiabatic and heat transfer tests allowed characterization of the wall correction factor and the heat transfer coefficient. An open literature model was implemented, tested, and optimized within...

  • Research Update: Non-Newtonian Flows in Heat Exchangers

    January 16, 2017
    HTRI has begun a research program dedicated to non-Newtonian flows. In order to discuss the plans for this research program, this webinar reviews the following items: the definition non-Newtonian fluids, the use apparent viscosity, focusing on power law fluids, how non-Newtonian flows affect pressure drop and heat transfer in heat exchangers...
