    Abstract: This paper presents the results of an experimental study on a pulsating turbulent flow through conical diffusers with total divergence angles (2θ) of 12, 16, and 24, whose inlet and exit were connected to long straight pipes. To examine the effects of the divergence angle and the nondimensional frequency on flow characteristics, experiments were... Show More
