Research and Markets: Turbulent Drag Reduction by Surfactant Additives
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Dublin - Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/vqbndq/turbulent_drag_red) has announced the addition of John Wiley and Sons Ltd's new book "Turbulent Drag Reduction by Surfactant Additives" to their offering.
Turbulent drag reduction by additives has long been a hot research topic. This phenomenon is inherently associated with multifold expertise. Solutions of drag-reducing additives are usually viscoelastic fluids having complicated rheological properties. Exploring the characteristics of drag-reduced turbulent flows calls for uniquely designed experimental and numerical simulation techniques and elaborate theoretical considerations. Pertinently understanding the turbulent drag reduction mechanism necessities mastering the fundamentals of turbulence and establishing a proper relationship between turbulence and the rheological properties induced by additives. Promoting the applications of the drag reduction phenomenon requires the knowledge from different fields such as chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, municipal engineering, and so on. This book gives a thorough elucidation of the turbulence characteristics and rheological behaviors, theories, special techniques and application issues for drag-reducing flows by surfactant additives based on the state-of-the-art of scientific research results through the latest experimental studies, numerical simulations and theoretical analyses.
- Covers turbulent drag reduction, heat transfer reduction, complex rheology and the real-world applications of drag reduction
- Introduces advanced testing techniques, such as PIV, LDA, and their applications in current experiments, illustrated with multiple diagrams and equations
- Real-world examples of the topic's increasingly important industrial applications enable readers to implement cost- and energy-saving measures
- Explains the tools before presenting the research results, to give readers coverage of the subject from both theoretical and experimental viewpoints
- Consolidates interdisciplinary information on turbulent drag reduction by additives
Key Topics Covered:
2 Drag Reduction and Heat Transfer Reduction Characteristics of Drag-Reducing Surfactant Solution Flow
3 Turbulence Structures in Drag-Reducing Surfactant Solution Flow
4 Numerical Simulation of Surfactant Drag Reduction
5 Microstructures and Rheological Properties of Surfactant Solution
6 Application Techniques for Drag Reduction by Surfactant Additives
