Abstract:

The study was a continuation of previous investigations of the flow of dilute 25 WPPM polymer Polyox WSR-301 solutions about bluff bodies in the drag transition flow regime. Detailed measurements of turbulence intensity, and turbulence microscale were taken in the near wake region of a circular cylinder for several degradation states of polymer flow. Additionally, the effects of polymer degradation upon hot-film anemometer operations were determined. The results of this study substantiated the determinations on turbulence indices in polymer flows which were previously reported. Author
