A real fluid does not slip at the surface of a solid boundary. Most experimental results of a Newtonian fluid satisfy with this condition. If a real fluid can slip freely over the surface of a solid boundary, how can we deduce the slip velocity? The purpose of this study is to experimentally clarify fluid slip velocity of Newtonian fluids at the duct wall. Velocity profiles of tap water and 20 wt% glycerin solution flowing in a square duct with a highly water repellent wall were measured by means of a conical hot film anemometer. Consequently, the velocity profile with the slip is measured, and the laminar drag reduction phenomena and the friction factor formula for a square duct with fluid slip at the wall have been obtained.
