The Rheometry of Free Surface Flows


Prof. Paul Slatter, one of our Senior Principal Engineers, recently published an article in the Journal of Non-Newtonian Fluid Mechanics. Currently the pipe flow paradigm is commonly used for the open channel design of Newtonian turbulent flow. However it is of limited use under laminar flow. This paper develops the fundamentals of sheet flow and translates this approach into a sheet flow paradigm. Request a copy of the presentation by contacting Charles Vuillier
