A comprehensive review of the heat transfer phenomena related to the flow of purely viscous non-Newtonian fluids exhibiting a yield stress in some simple and complex geometries is presented. Both attached and separated flows of Bingham and Herschel-Bulkley fluids are discussed. The presence of a yield-stress is shown to significantly impact the heat transfer and flow characteristics, as compared to those in the case of a Newtonian fluid, in particular in the cases where separation of the flow would be expected.
