Abstract

The drag reduction and heat transfer characteristics of water solutions with two kinds of surfactants (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide and dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride) in a straight pipe were investigated experimentally. The flow resistance and heat transfer of water solution flow with the two kinds of surfactants were markedly reduced as compared with those of pure water flow. Useful nondimensional correlative equations for flow resistance and heat transfer were derived in terms of various nondimensional parameters.
