NCSU MAE308 26. Identify the physical significance of each of the following four terms in the steady two- dimensional form of the Navier-Stokes equations as labelled: 1 2 3 4 ρ u u x + v u y = - P x + μ 2 u x 2 + 2 u y 2 + X { { ρ u v x + v v y = - P y + μ 2 v x 2 + 2 v y 2 + Y { { 1=inertial forces 2=pressure forces 3=viscous forces 4=external body forces 27. Steady, incompressible laminar flow between two-stationary, infinite parallel plates is called Poiseuille flow . The plates are infinite in the x and z directions. Neglect body forces. (a) Write the three-dimensional form of the conservation of mass equation and reduce this equation for the flow considered. (b) Write the three components of the Navier-Stokes equation and reduce these equations for the flow considered. Determine the velocity profile u(y). Note that, unlike Couette flow, fluid motion between the plates is now sustained by a finite pressure gradient.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
