Formation of the boundary layer in the laminar flow of Herschel–Bulkley fluid between parallel plates is taken into consideration. In particular, the study is focused on the flow of the shear thinning and shear thickening fluids past a partial vertical wall in between the plates. Upon numerically solving the continuity and momentum equations the flow is analyzed throughout the domain using a finite volume scheme. The shear stress at the wall together with velocity distribution are evaluated and compared with experimental results for several values of Herschel-Bulkley coefficients for fluidity and flow behavior index.
