This lesson covers the transition and turbulent flow of generalized Newtonian fluids in pipes. It begins with a recap of previous lessons, discussing the derivation of velocity profiles, volumetric flow rates, and friction factors for different types of fluids, including power law fluids, Ellis model fluids, Bingham plastics, and Herschel-Bulkley fluids. The lesson then delves into the criteria for transition from laminar to turbulent flow for non-Newtonian fluids. It discusses the critical Reynolds number and how it varies depending on the type and degree of non-Newtonian behavior. The lesson also covers the friction factor for viscoplastic fluids under transition and turbulent conditions. It concludes with a few example problems to illustrate the concepts discussed.
