Unformatted text preview: of a specific viscous-flow analysis, we take the classic problem
of flow in a full pipe, driven by pressure or gravity or both. Figure 6.10 shows the
geometry of the pipe of radius R. The x-axis is taken in the flow direction and is inclined to the horizontal at an angle .
Before proceeding with a solution to the equations of motion, we can learn a lot by
making a control-volume analysis of the flow between sections 1 and 2 in Fig. 6.10.
The continuity relation, Eq. (3.23), reduces to
or V1 Q2
A2 V2 (6.23) since the pipe is of constant area. The steady-flow energy equation (3.71) reduces to
