Prediction of compliant wall drag reduction, part 2 A numerical model of turbulent boundary layer flows over compliant walls was investigated. The model is based on Burton's observation that outer flow structures in turbulent boundary layers produce large scale pressure fluctuations near the wall.

On the theory of compliant wall drag reduction in turbulent boundary layers A theoretical model has been developed which can explain how the motion of a compliant wall reduces turbulent skin friction drag. Available experimental evidence at low speeds has been used to infer that a compliant surface selectively removes energy from the upper frequency range of the energy containing eddies and.

Drag reduction in gas transmission lines can be achieved by applying a thin chemical coating on the pipe’s inner surface to reduce friction between the flowing gas and pipe wall.

An important criterion for gas drag reduction is that the additive can bond strongly onto metal surfaces and form a smooth film to mitigate the turbulence at the gas.

Thus, (Drag)1+2 = (Drag)1 + (Drag)2 + (Drag)interference Generally, interference drag will add to the component drags but in a few cases, for example, adding tip tanks to a wing, total drag will be less than the sum of the two component drags because of the reduction of induced drag.

had any real role. Flexible and rigid long chain polymers in very dilute solutions can significantly reduce the drag in turbulent flows. The polymers successively stretch and coil by interacting with the turbulent structures, which changes the turbulent flow and further imposes a transient behavior on the drag reduction (DR) as well as a subsequent mechanical polymer degradation.

13 - 3 Classification of drag according to physical causes The total drag can be subdivided into (compare with Equation ): 1.

zero-lift drag: drag without the presents of lift; 2. induced drag: drag due to lift. In addition wave drag comes into play, caused by a Mach numberM that is greater than the critical Mach number definition, Mcrit is the flight Mach number where a flow.

Drag Reduction 6 FLOPAM DR Drag Reduction The shear degradation of the polymer is limited even at very high speed (25 m.s-1 or 75 ft.s) on 3 to 6 inches pipes. The shear is lower very often than s-1 in the pipe. But a part of the process is dependant on surface equipment sometimes not very adapted to the case of the polymer: high speed.

The total drag reduction schemes use a curve-fit routine that generates airfoil drag polars given flap angle and Reynolds number. The approximated drag polars allow the prediction of profile drag values to be combined with induced drag values to form a total drag function, which is utilized with a constrained nonlinear optimizer that determines.
