Paper Number: SPE-1682-PA
Published: 01 December 1967
...Richard W. Hanks The method of Caldwell and Babbitt for determining Bingham plastic rheological constants from engineering pipe flow data has been erroneously used in many previous applications. A reanalysis of extensive pipe flow data from the literature is performed. Critical Reynolds numbers...

... brine and Pb. Babbitt metals are used to coat the surface of the thrust‐bearing pads. The name, which refers to several Pb‐ or tin‐based alloys, was taken from its initial creator Isaac Babbitt when he first formulated the alloy in 1839 with a composition of 89.3 wt% tin, 7.1 wt% antimony, and 3.6...
