Bingham Number

Bingham number is proportional to { (yield stress) / (viscous stress) } and is used in momentum transfer in general and flow of bingham plastics calculations in particular. It is normally defined in the following form :

 

Bingham Number

 

Where:

gc

=

Dimensional constant

L

=

Characteristic length

mu

=

Viscosity

tau_y

=

Stress

V

=

Velocity
