Reynold's Number

Reynolds number for Bingham plastic fluid is defined as

\displaystyle \displaystyle Re = \frac{D.v.\rho}{\mu_{p}}

where, D is pipe inside diameter, V is fluid velocity, ρ is fluid density and μp is plastic viscosity.

Friction Factor

For Laminar flow, friction factor is provided by Buckingham Reiner equation.

For turbulent flow, an empirical relationship was developed by Darby and Melson.
