Abstract

The role of a viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluid on static pressure distributions and pressure fluctuations across a sudden-expansion step in a circular pipe was investigated in the present study. The expansion ration of the sudden-expansion step was 1.9, and the range of the Reynolds number based on the inlet diameter was 5,000-25,000. Tap water and aqueous solutions of polyacrylamide (Separan AP-273) were used as the Newtonian fluid and viscoelastic non-Newtonian fluid. Pressure fluctuations with the polyacrylamide solutions was much smaller than those with water, and decreased with increasing concentration of the polyacrylamide solution.
