Laminar Flow in a Pipe of NNF: Yield Stress Fluids Can you think of examples of Yield stress fluids ? These are fluids that behave as a solid (i.e. don’t flow) until a stress is applied to a sample that is greater than a critical value. Constitutive models used to describe such fluids: Bingham model s s y B Herschel-Buckley model s s y K n Laminar Flow in a Pipe of NNF: Yield Stress Fluids Pipe flow of Yield Stress Fluids : • the fluid may NOT flow.

It has partially crystallised (i.e waxy crude oil) and has a yield stress of 500 Pa.
