Abstract

This paper discusses in an experimental way the traction force exerted by a flow of aqueous foam through the annular space between a central rod and the inner walls of the pipe. These studies were made to prove if foam behaves as a granular material or as a power-law fluid. Experiments allow concluding that the flow of dry foam is a type of slipping flow where the traction does not depend on the radius of the pipe or on the radius of the rod.
