Pressure drop in contraction flow

Henrik Koblitz Rasmussen

    Research output: Book/ReportBook


    This note is a supplement to Dynamic of Polymeric Liquids (DPL) page 178. DPL gives an equation for the pressure drop in a tapered (and circular) contraction, valid only at low angles. Here the general definition of contraction flow (the Bagley correction) and a more general method to find the pressure drop in a contraction are given.
