Abstract
The bulk properties of aqueous high polymer solutions were investigated to establish a simple and reliable method for predicting friction reduction, and okra gum was investigated as a friction reducing additive in pipe flow. Experimental results indicate how some bulk properties are significantly affected by the presence of high polymers, and also show that okra gum is effective as a friction reducer in turbulent pipe flow with overall behavior comparable to polyethylene oxide.
