Chemical Engineering has shared a FAYF related FLUID FLOW. This FAYF is infact has been released in previous month, however, CE share with CE FREE subscriber again this month.

Fluid Type
In this FAYF, it starts with definition of fluid type such as :
i) Newtonian
ii) Power law
iii) Bingham plastic


Newtonian fluid
A fluid is known to be Newtonian when shear stresses associated with flow are directly proportional to the shear rate of the fluid.

Power law fluid
A structural fluid has a structure that forms in the undeformed state, but then breaks down as shear rate increases. Such a fluid exhibits “power law” behavior at intermediate shear rates

Bingham plastic fluid
A plastic is a material that exhibits a yield stress, meaning that it behaves as a solid below the stress level and as a fluid above the stress level

This one-page fact sheet summarizes information pertinent to laminar and turbulent pipe flow for the various types of fluids commonly encountered in the CPI...
