HEAT TRANSFER IN A HETEROGENEOUS DRAG REDUCTION SYSTEM

Heat transfer measurements are reported on heterogeneous and homogeneous drag reduction systems. The heterogeneous drag reduction is caused by injecting concentrated polymer solution into turbulent pipe flow. The heat transfer reduction in heterogeneous drag reduction proves to be equal to the reduction of the radial momentum transfer. The experimental evidence suggests that it may be possible to achieve considerable drag reduction in supply lines to heat exchangers without diminishing the heat transfer.
