Modeling Compressible Non-Newtonian Chicken Flow

Matveichuk, O and Rosen Esquivel, P and Heidari, H and Muntean, A (2010) Modeling Compressible Non-Newtonian Chicken Flow. [Study Group Report]



This paper addresses a few modeling issues relevant for the basic theoretical understanding of the meat flow behavior in simple geometries. We model the meat mixture as a non-Newtonian compressible fluid. Focusing on conceptually easy-to-follow cases like flow in thin molds, or steady incompressible or compressible flow in straight pipes we derive explicit expressions for the velocity and pressure profiles. For the thin moldcase, we formulate a one-dimensional free-boundary problem able to capture the a priori unknown position of the moving meat-air interface. Special attention is payed on the derivation of the free boundary conditions.
