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 Q1 or V1 Q2 Q1 A1 const Q2 A2 V2 (6.23) since the pipe is of constant area. The steady-flow energy equation (3.71) reduces to p1 1 2 2 1V 1 gz1 p2 1 2 2 2V 2 gz2 ghf (6.24) | v v since there are no shaft-work or heat-transfer effects.
