Gomez-Solano, Juan Ruben eng 2014-09-01 Gomez-Solano, Juan Ruben Wirner, Frank Wirner, Frank terms-of-use Bechinger, Clemens Scholz, Christian 2017-06-14T08:45:38Z Bechinger, Clemens We experimentally investigate hydrodynamic dispersion in elastic turbulent flows of a semi-dilute aqueous polymer solution within a periodic porous structure at ultra-low Reynolds numbers <10<sup>-3</sup> by particle tracking velocimetry. Our results indicate that elastic turbulence can be characterized by an effective dispersion coefficient which exceeds that of Newtonian liquids by several orders of magnitude and grows non-linearly with the Weissenberg number Wi. Contrary to laminar flow conditions, the velocity field, and thus the shear rate, is not proportional to the flow rate and becomes asymmetric at high Wi.
