Viscous drag reduction caused by polymer injection into a developing turbulent boundary layer was investigated in a inch I.D. hydraulically rough pipe. Pressure drop measurements were made in the first diameters of the pipe. Velocity profile and concentration profile measurements were also taken.

For example, viscous drag generally varies directly with the flow speed, whereas pressure drag varies with the square of the speed. Scientists use a dimensionless ratio called the Reynolds number to give a measure of the relative importance of viscous or pressure drag in particular conditions. The Reynolds number, Re, b is given by. VISCOUS DRAG REDUCTION IN BOUNDARY LAYERS Download Viscous Drag Reduction In Boundary Layers ebook PDF or Read Online books in PDF, EPUB, and Mobi Format.

This volume authoritatively treats viscous drag reduction in four major categories--laminar flow control, passive turbulent drag reduction, active turbulent drag reduction, and interactive turbulent drag reduction--and presents emerging technologies, such as the use of surfactants, as an alternative to : Hardcover.

The potential drag reduction and suction requirements, including the necessary compressor power, are calculated on component level using a flow solver with viscid/inviscid coupling and a .

In fluid dynamics, drag (sometimes called air resistance, a type of friction, or fluid resistance, another type of friction or fluid friction) is a force acting opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid. This can exist between two fluid layers (or surfaces) or a fluid and a solid surface. Unlike other resistive forces, such as dry friction, which.
