J.Brandon Dooley

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 and the capabilities of Xphe® with regard to non-Newtonian fluids. The webinar concludes by reviewing the future of the non-Newtonian flow research program at HTRI.
