Experimental evaluation of momentum terms in turbulent pipe flow

Virgil A. Sandborn
Jan 1955

The mean and turbulent momentum terms in fully developed turbulent pipe flow were experimentally evaluated. The terms of the longitudinal-direction momentum equation, obtained from the Reynolds equations of turbulent fluid motion, were experimentally evaluated in a 4-inch-diameter pipe from total- and static-pressure data and hot-wired anemometer surveys.
