Heat transfer and drag at a transversal flow around a cylinder covered with a layer ot magnetic fluid

V. G. Bashtovoi - N. K. Tkhang - V. A. Chernobai

The effect of a magnetic fluid cover of heat transfer and drag of a cylinder at a transversal flow of oil around it has been studied experimentally. If the cylinder surface is covered with a layer of poorly viscous magnetic fluid (the ratio of viscosity of the oil and the magnetic fluid η12 being 7.96), the reduction of hydraulic drag will be up to 15.5
