Unformatted text preview: Consider the steady, laminar flow of an incompressible fluid through the horizontal rectangular channel shown below. Assume that the velocity components in the x and y directions are zero and the only body force is the weight of the fluid (acting in the –y direction). Starting with the Navier-Stokes equations, (a) determine he appropriate set of differential equations and boundary conditions for this problem. (Use the axes and variables indicated on the figure). Do not solve the equations. (b) Show that the pressure distribution is hydrostatic at any particular cross section. x y b a...
