A STUDY OF THE WAKE REGION OF THE FLOW OF DILUTE POLYMER SOLUTION ABOUT CIRCULAR CYLINDERS

The wake region of the flow of dilute polymer solution about a circular cylinder was studied. Polyox WSR-301 at a concentration of 25 WPPM was dissolved in tap water. The investigation was performed in the drag transition flow regime. Turbulence intensity, wake width, microscale of turbulence and frequency spectra were measured at various points in the wake region of water flow and polymer solution flow. (Author)
