When the curvature ratio is set to zero, the new correlation reduces to the well-known Virk’s MDR asymptote for dilute polymer solutions in straight pipes. A new drag reduction envelope is proposed for the analysis of drag reduction behavior of polymeric fluids...

.... In addition, the critical Reynolds number of the polymer solutions increased, where Taylor vortices occur, because the generation of the Görtler vortices was retarded. In high concentration polymer solutions, this effect became remarkable. Measurements of steady-state Taylor cells showed that the upper...
