Description

Drag reduction is important not only to improve energy saving in fluid engineering, but also for turbulent flow control in fluid mechanics. Accurately modelling flow behaviour with drag reduction is always complex, and when drag reducing additives or solid particles are mixed in the fluids, the flow analysis becomes even harder.

In this book, drag reduction phenomena of complex mixtures in internal and external flows are shown experimentally by dividing flow patterns into 3 categories to help us understand the effect of particle scale on flow.

The book is intended to support further experiments or analysis in drag reduction.

Key Features

  • Comprehensively addresses a range of drag reduction themes involving different kinds of complex mixtures
  • Provides data to support further experimentation and computer modeling of drag in complex flow
  • Includes an introduction to the nature and characteristics of different kinds of complex mixture

Readership

Chemical Engineering graduate students and researchers with an interest in polymer drag reduction. Also corporate R&D and research centres focused on complex flow problems in petrochemical, or food science
