Title

The Effect of Viscoelastic Additives on Jet Structures

Editor(s)

Englman, R. and Jaeger, Z.

Abstract

Jet photographs and jet impact measurements were made on turbulent water jets with and without viscoelastic additives. Coherent lengths were estimated from the photographs, and the effects of nozzle diameter and pressure on coherent length were determined. For high pressure water jets, there appears to be a second plateau on the LSUPB/D WESUB1SUB/SUB2vs. RE curve at high values of RE, as suggested by Phinney. Aqueous solutions of viscoelastic additives which are known to be effective drag reducers also gave longer coherent jet lengths. (A)
