Abstract

The study of frictional drag force reduction has been the subject of much research for many years. One of the significant developments in the field of frictional drag force reduction has been the discovery of the effectiveness of dilute polymer solutions in reducing drag. By using dilute high-polymer solutions frictional drag forces in pipe flow have been reduced by as much as 70 per cent.
