Experimental investigation verifying current concepts on fully developed turbulent pipe flow. Previous contradictions and uncertainties on certain details may now be considered as resolved, also showing that Nikuradses classical experiments must be in error. Serving as a preparation to future studies on turbulent flows of distilled water with certain high molecular weight additives it is shown that presently applied technique is recommendable also for such studies. It appears that minute amounts of additive may have a remarkable influence upon certain thermal properties of distilled water. Author
