Non-Newtonian pressure loss and discharge coefficients for short square-edged orifices plates
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2011)
Despite the extensive research work carried out on flow through short square-edged orifice plates over the last century (e.g. Johansen, 1930; Benedict, 1977; Alvi et al., 1978; Swamee, 2005; ESDU, 2007), gaps in the ...
Singular behaviour of Non-Newtonian fluids
(Peninsula Technikon, 1999)
Since 1996, a team at the Centre for Research in Applied Technology (CRATECH) at Peninsula Technikon, under NRF sponsorship and with industrial co-operation, has been involved in the simulation of Non-Newtonian flow ...
Identification of flow patterns for coarse particles transported in a non-Newtonian carrier using electrical resistance tomography
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
Flow features provide considerable guidance for the rational selection of techniques to predict hydraulic behaviour and for suitable operating conditions for pipelines. Traditionally, water was used to transport coarse ...
Bingham yield stress and Bingham plastic viscosity of homogeneous Non-Newtonian slurries
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2016)
This dissertation presents how material properties (solids densities, particle size distributions, particle shapes and concentration) of gold tailings slurries are related to their rheological parameters, which are yield ...
