Abstract

The reduction characteristics of flow resistance and heat transfer of water solution flow with the surfactant (Cetyltrimethyl-ammonium Bromide) in tubes were investigated experimentally. The flow resistance and heat transfer of Water solution flow with the surfactant were markedly reduced as compared with those of pure water flow. Useful nondimensional correlative equations of flow resistance and heat transfer were derived in terms of various non-dimensional parameters.
