sion that satisfactorily fits most of the published data. The model is based on Levich's (156) three-zone concept and Kolmogoroff's (157) isotropic turbulence theory and has no empirical adjustable parameters. The model can take into consideration non-Newtonian behavior of the liquid and predicts the enhancement of the heat transfer due to the shear-thinning effect of the fluid. The dimensionless expression may be written as:

Nu = 0.075(10.3n-a63)ßn1/3(Pr*) 1 Fr-ß(Re*)ß+ 3(n+1)
