Generalized non-Newtonian flow of ice slurry through bends
BEATA NIEZGODA-ŻELASKO, JERZY ŻELASKO

Abstract

The present paper covers the flow of ice slurry made of the 10.6% ethanol solution through small-radius bends pipes. The study presents the results of experimental research on ice slurry flow resistance in 90◦ bends in laminar and turbulent flow ranges. The research has made it possible to derive a set of criterial relationships which determine the local resistance coefficients of ice slurry, which is a Bingham fluid and whose flow is treated as a generalized flow of a nonNewtonian fluid.
