Abstract

This paper deals with seal performance of a non-Newtonian power-law fluid. The mechanism comprises a primary seal ring flexibly mounted on a support and a secondary seal plate capable of rotating about  a shaft. Solution to the seal performance is obtained unlike earlier1 authors in closed form  subject to a set of boundary conditions compatible with the fluid motion and as such the leakage velocity- components have been determined analytically for pseudo plastic fluids and dilatants. Finally numerical examples have been illustrated in case of some non-Newtonian fluids.
