SINOPSIS

Steady axisymmetric laminar flow of incompressible power-law fluid around ellipsoidal particle is studied numerically. The power law index are ranged over 0.5 ≤ n ≤ 1.5 i. e., covering both shear-thinning and shear-thickening behavior. Numerical results are presented for an ellipsoid of axis ratio a/b = 2 and the limiting case of a sphere at various Reynolds number between 20 and 200. Special consideration is given to the effect of power law index on the skin friction coefficient, separation angles and drag coefficient. The streamline plots showing the nature of flow and the wake structure are presented. It was found that the total drag coefficient around the ellipsoid is strongly governed by the power law index as well as the Reynolds number. It was observed that the separation appears at lower power-law index (shear thinning) and disappear at higher power law index (shear thickening). Separation angels and drag coefficient for special case of a sphere was found to be in good agreement with previous experimental results and with the standard drag curve.
