This lesson covers the transport phenomena of non-Newtonian fluids, focusing on the laminar flow of generalized Newtonian fluids between parallel plates and along inclined surfaces. It discusses the different geometries, such as pipe and circular cylinder, and how to obtain the volumetric flow rate, velocity profile, average velocity, and friction factor under laminar flow conditions. The lesson also explains the concept of fully developed flow and how to calculate the shear stress and velocity profile for different types of fluids, including power-law fluids, Bingham fluids, and viscoplastic fluids. It concludes with an example problem demonstrating how to calculate the volumetric flow rate for an Ellis model fluid flowing down an inclined surface.
