A lowReynoldsnumber kω model for Newtonian fluids has been developed to predict drag reduction of viscoelastic fluids described by the FENEP model. The model is an extension to viscoelastic fluids of the model for Newtonian fluids developed by Bredberg et al. (Int J Heat Fluid Flow 23:731–743, 2002). The performance of the model was assessed using results from direct numerical simulations for fully developed turbulent channel flow of FENEP fluids. It should only be used for drag reductions of up to 50 % (low and intermediate drag reductions), because of the limiting assumption of turbulence isotropy leading to an underprediction of k, but compares favourably with results from kε models in the literature based on turbulence isotropy.
