Heat and Mass Transfer in Non-Newtonian Fluids

Call for Papers

A non-Newtonian fluid is a fluid whose viscosity variable based on applied stress. The most commonly known non-Newtonian fluid is cornstarch dissolved in water. Contrast with Newtonian fluids like water, whose behavior can be described exclusively by temperature and pressure, not the forces acting on it from second to second. Non-Newtonian fluids are fascinating substances that can be used to help us understand the physics in more detailed, in an exciting, and hands-on way. Non-Newtonian fluids help us understand the wide variety of fluids that exist in the physical world. Plastic solids, power-law fluids, viscoelastic fluids, and time-dependent viscosity fluids are others that exhibit complex and counterintuitive relationships between shear stress and viscosity/elasticity. A practical application for shear-thickening non-Newtonian fluids may be in body armor of the future. Since such fluids are usually flexible, they would allow soldiers to move freely when not under attack. But if confronted with a speeding bullet, they would quickly harder, performing like traditional armor.

We invite investigators to contribute original research as well as review articles in the following topics. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Boundary layer heat and mass transfer in non-Newtonian fluids
  • Heat and mass transfer in internal flows of non-Newtonian fluids
  • Unsteady non-Newtonian fluid flow
  • Experimental data on non-Newtonian flow (internal and external)
  • Non-Newtonian fluid films
