The effect of pipe roughness on non-Newtonian turbulent flow
(Cape Technikon, 1999)
Pipe roughness is known to greatly increase the turbulent flow friction factor for Newtonian fluids. The well-known Moody diagram shows that an order of magnitude increase in the friction is possible due to the effect ...
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 ...
Centrifugal pump derating non-Newtonian slurries: analysis of the viscosity to be used in the hydraulic institute method
(Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2013)
Centrifugal pumps are the most commonly used pumps in slurry transport systems. The design of pumping systems dealing with liquids more viscous than water requires a reliable method of pump performance prediction for the ...
The effect of the particle size distribution on non-Newtonian turbulent slurry flow in pipes
(Cape Technikon, 1996)
The handling of solid-liquid suspensions is an important concern within the chemical and processing industries and many theoretical models have been proposed to try and explain and predict turbulent flow behaviour. ...
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 ...
