Calculations for Pumping Non-Newtonian Fluids
When pumping fluids over long distances, the required pressure, pipe diameter, and flow rate is calculated. For non-Newtonian fluids, it is sufficient to consider them as power law fluids, in terms of processing, due to the shear rates.
Chewing the Fat
Prof. D. J. McClements of the University of Massachusetts and Dr Steve Carrington of Malvern Instruments describe the process of using rheology to measure changes in food during mastication, comparing the rheological behaviour of low-fat sauces with ...
