Abstract : Experimental studies on the transition process of pipe flow of liquids and the viscous behavior of distilled water are presented. The research comprises four parts: (a) Study on the effects of lateral tube deflections on some turbulent transition quantities. (b) Studies on the spontaneous release of tube turbulence related to tube diameter and variations of microscopic surface roughness. (c) Study of phenomena occurring when intentionally agitated disturbances have been introduced into the pipe flow by injecting liquid of controlled amounts of momentum. (d) Measurements of the apparent viscosity of distilled water flowing through cylindrical pipes. (Author)
