Abstract
This study was a continuation of previous investigations of the flow of dilute (25 WPPM) polymer (Polyox WSR-301) solutions about bluff bodies in the drag transition flow regime. Detailed measurements of turbulence intensity, and turbulence microscale were taken in the near wake region of a circular cylinder for several degradation states of polymer flow. Additionally, the effects of polymer degradation upon hot-film anemometer operations were determined. the results of this study substantiated the determinations on turbulence indices in polymer flows which were previously reported.
