Simultaneous Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurement and Planar Laser Induced Fluorescence (PLIF) measurement at the same position were performed to clarify the relationship between spatial structure and mass transfer in the drag reducing surfactant flow. In the drag reducing flow, mass flux is largely suppressed in the near-wall region with increasing drag reduction rate. To discuss the relationship between coherent motion and drag reduction more detail, weighted probability density function was also calculated. As a result of simultaneous measurement, diffusion of wall-normal direction is largely suppressed and this indicated that turbulent coherent structure changes and sweep and ejection which produce the skin frictional drag are suppressed.
