Use of laser doppler anemometer for the investigation of turbulent flow of polymer solutions

  • 14 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


The results of measurements of the mean velocity, the intensity of the longitudinal and the transverse components of the fluctuation velocity, and Reynolds stresses in the wake of a disk with polyoxyethylene solution injected in the aft zone are presented. The measurements were made by a laser anemometer.
