Reply to "Comment on Sochi's Variational Method for Generalised Newtonian Flow" by Pritchard and Corson

Authors: Taha Sochi

In this article we challenge the claim that the previously proposed variational method to obtain flow solutions for generalized Newtonian fluids in circular tubes and plane slits is exact only for power law fluids. We also defend the theoretical foundation and formalism of the method which is based on minimizing the total stress through the application of the Euler-Lagrange principle.
