Fluid friction controller

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #5027919.

A fluid friction controller that includes an outer member having a first friction control surface and an inner member having a second friction control surface. The control surfaces coact to define an elongated orifice that diverges from its entrance toward its exit. The length of the orifice is related to the angle of divergence so that the flow of a fluid passing therethrough remains attached to the control surfaces and the dynamic pressure in the flow does not exceed the static pressure at any point along the length of the orifice.
