Abstract

Drag reduction is observed as reduced frictional pressure losses under turbulent flow conditions and hence, substantially increases the flowrate of the fluid. Practical application includes water flooding system, pipeline transport and drainage system. Drag reduction agent, such as polymers, can be introduced to increase the flowrate of water flowing, reducing the water accumulation in the system and subsequently lesser possibility of heavy flooding. Currently used polymers in these applications are mostly synthetic polymers which may seep into the ground and further harm our environment in excessive use of accumulation. A more environmentally-friendly drag reduction agent, derived from a natural source, a biopolymer, is synthesized in this study to address the issue. As opposed to synthetic polymers, to date, the potential of biopolymers as drag reduction agents, especially those derived from a local plant source, are not extensively explored.
