Abstract:

The report shows, from a theoretical discussion and analysis of experimental data, that the fractional reduction of the friction factor of a conventional liquid induced by polymeric solutes is proportional, at infinite dilution, to the 13 power of the Weissenberg number. It also shows that additives will not, usually, delay transition. Author
