Abstract:

Equipment designed to study the effect of polymer additives on fluid flow is described. The objective of the equipment is the following 1 Visual observation of the boundary layer using stereoscopic techniques. 2 Measurement, by means of a hydrophone, of the change in pressure fluctuations due to the additives. 3 Determination of the accuracy of pitot tube measurements in visoelastic fluids and 4 Determination of the material constants used in the constitutive equation studied.
