Abstract : Equipment designed to study the effect of polymer additives on fluid flow is described. The objective of the equipment is the following: (1) Visual observation of the boundary layer using stereoscopic techniques. (2) Measurement, by means of a hydrophone, of the change in pressure fluctuations due to the additives. (3) Determination of the accuracy of pitot tube measurements in visoelastic fluids and (4) Determination of the material constants used in the constitutive equation studied. (Author)
