An effect of pipe diameter on drag reduction in a pipeline flow is taken into account by an adjustment of the modeling approach of Yang and Dou (2005). For validation of this adjustment, computational results obtained by the drag reduction models of Eskin (2014) and Yang and Dou (2010), based on the Yang and Dou approach, are compared with the experimental data of Virk (1975).
