Abstract

This paper has dealt with the flow resistance and heat transfer characteristics of flowing cold water with flow drag reduction additive in curved pipes. A cationic surfactant was used as the flow drag reduction additive. The flow drag resistance and the local heat transfer coefficient of cold water flow in some curved pipes were measured under the constant heat flux heating wall condition. It was found that the flow drag and heat transfer reduction effect by the surfactant was depended on the angle and curved ratio of the curved pipes. The nondimensional correlative equations of flow resistance and heat transfer coefficient of cold-water flow with the surfactant in the curved pipe were derived in terms of various nondimensional parameters.
