Thus there is pressure work done on the fluid. If, say, the pipe is insulated from heat loss, where does this energy go? Make a thermodynamic analysis of the pipe flow. W6.2 From the Moody chart (Fig. 6.13), rough surfaces, such as sand grains or ragged machining, do not affect laminar flow. Can you explain why? They do affect turbulent flow. Can you develop, or suggest, an analytical-physical model of turbulent flow near a rough surface which might be used to predict the known increase in pressure drop? W6.3 Differentiation of the laminar pipe-flow solution, Eq. (6.40), shows that the fluid shear stress (r) varies...
