This lesson covers the transport phenomena of non-Newtonian fluids, focusing on Power-law and Ellis Model Fluids Flow through Pipes. It begins with a recap of the previous class, discussing the development of the velocity profile for time-independent non-Newtonian fluid. The lesson then delves into the details of how to obtain the velocity profile, volumetric flow rate, average and maximum velocity, and pressure distribution for a fluid flowing through a pipe due to pressure difference. The lesson also explains the importance of the friction factor in designing and controlling operational parameters. Towards the end, the lesson provides a detailed walkthrough of how to calculate the pressure drop required to maintain a specific volumetric flow rate.

The velocity profile, volumetric flow rate, average and maximum velocity, and pressure distribution can be obtained for a fluid flowing through a pipe due to pressure difference.

The friction factor is an essential factor in designing and controlling operational parameters.

The pressure drop required to maintain a specific volumetric flow rate can be calculated using the principles of transport phenomena of non-Newtonian fluids.

The transport phenomena of non-Newtonian fluids can be applied in practical scenarios, as illustrated in the example problem.
