This lesson covers the transport phenomena of non-Newtonian fluids, specifically focusing on Herschel-Bulkley fluids flow through pipes. It discusses the process of obtaining the velocity profile and volumetric flow rate equations for viscoplastic fluids flowing through pipes. The lesson also explains the derivation of equations for the case of Bingham plastic fluids and Herschel-Bulkley fluids. It further elaborates on the concept of viscoplastic fluids, their properties, and how they behave under different conditions. For instance, it explains how the material does not flow as long as the applied stress is less than the characteristic yield stress. The lesson concludes with an example problem on the derivation for the case of Herschel-Bulkley fluid.
