Abstract

The combined hydrodynamic and thermal entrance flow velocity and temperature distribution in a circular pipe for a non-Newtonian Bingham-type fluid is obtained using the fully elliptic governing continuity, momentum, and energy equations. A strongly implicit numerical technique for the solution of the finite difference equations is employed which has already been proven to efficiently and accurately predict Newtonian flows. Laminar flow and constant fluid properties are assumed. The solutions obtained are for a wide range of Reynolds, Yield, and Prandtl numbers and are compared with other solutions based on reduced forms of the governing equations.
