Abstract

A hot-film sensor was flush-mounted in the wall of a four-inch pipe and was calibrated as a function of wall shear stress. Flows with water and with homogeneous aqueous solutions of Polyox WSR-301 were utilized. The heat transfer characteristics of the sensor were reduced for polymer flows. Measurements of the number of zeroes and the frequency spectra for the turbulent fluctuations were obtained for a variety of test conditions. The effects of Polyox WSR-301 on surface pressure fluctuations on both smooth and rough surfaces were also measured.
