A comparative study is made of the pressure effect of relaxation and bulk viscosity in stationary flow. It is shown that both stagnation pressure defects (Kantrowitz effect) and pressure distribution in small nozzles in principle constitute methods for distinguishing between the two theories. A discussion of the experimental data on carbon dioxide shows that in this case only the relaxation interpretation is possible.
