Velocity profile of the turbulent flow of weak polymer solutions in a tube

Experimental data relatingto the velocity profiles of the turbulent flow of polyox, guar resin, and polyacrylamide solutions (10−6 to 6.10−4 g/cm3) in a 35-mm diameter tube are presented. Analytical relationships obtained by expressingthese profiles in the form of a three-layer model enable us to relate the form of the velocity profiles to the resistance coefficient and the Reynolds number of the flow.
