Calculate the pressure as a function on x and y . Solution To find the pressure, we need to solve the 2D Navier Stokes Equations. First, we will list the assumptions given in the problem statement. Assumptions 1. Steady and Laminar( t 0) 2. Incompressible, Newtonian Flow ( constant and constant) 3. We know u x = a , v y = a , and u y = v x = 2 u x 2 = 2 u y 2 = 2 v x 2 = 2 v y 2 = 0. xComponent u t + u u x + v u y = P x + g x + " 2 u x 2 + 2 u y 2 # (1) P x = u u x = ( ax + b )( a ) P = Z ( a 2 x + ab ) dx = a 2 x 2 2 + abx + f ( y ) + C yComponent v t + u v x + v v y = P y + g y + " 2 v x 2 + 2 v y 2 # (2) P y = v v y = ( ay + c )( a ) P = Z ( a 2 y + ac ) dy =  a 2 y 2 2 + acy + f ( x ) + C C is some arbitrary scalar. We can see that f ( y ) = h a 2 y 2 2 + acy i and f ( x ) = h a 2 x 2 2 + abx i , therefore: P = a ax 2 2 + bx + ay 2 2 cy + C 1 II Problem 2 Consider steady, incompressible, laminar flow of a Newtonian fluid in an infinitely long round pipe annulus of inner radius R i and outer radius R o . Ignore effects of gravity. A constant negative pressure gradient P/x is applied in the x direction, P x = P 2 P 1 x 2 x 1 , where x 1 and x 2 are arbitrary locations along the x axis, and P 1 and P 2 are the pressures at those two locations. The pressure gradient may be caused by the pump and/or gravity. Note that we adopt a modified cylindrical coordinate system here with x instead of z for the axial component, namely, ( r,,x ) and ( u r ,u ,u x ). Derive an expression for the velocity field in the annular space in the pipe. Solution To solve for the velocity field, we will need to solve the Navier Stokes and Continuity equations in cylindrical coordinates. Here are the assumptions we will use to help us reduce the equations to a solvable form. Assumptions 1. Steady and Laminar( t 0) 2. Incompressible, Newtonian Flow ( constant and constant) 3. Axisymmetric ( 0, u 0) 4. Negligible End EffectsNo boundary layer effects because infinitely long ( x 0) 5. Boundary Conditions: Due to No Slip u x  r = R i = u x  r = R o = 0 Flow cant penetrate a solid wall u r  r = R i = u r  r = R o = 0 Continuity 1 r ( ru r ) r + 1 r u + u z z = 0 (3) This tells us that u r does not depend on r , and therefore, since is doesnt depend on (Assumption 3) or x (Assumption 4), it must be a constant. Also, since we know u r = 0 at the walls and it is constant, it must be zero everywhere. Thereforeat the walls and it is constant, it must be zero everywhere....
