Free surface profiles and flow field patterns of dip coating with Newtonian and Bingham fluids were analyzed by Hurez and Tanguy [18], with the purpose of finding the location of the free surface and investigating flow characteristics at equilibrium.
Numerical results exhibit robustness and scalability of the solver with respect to the mesh size, demonstrating that the proposed method can be used for the accurate simulation of non-regularized Bingham fluids.
The combination of regularized and non-regularized models presented here specifically for the solution of Bingham fluids is a novel contribution of the present paper.
Concrete and mortar are generally accepted to be Bingham fluids [6].
