The Navier-Stokes Equation ~v t + ~v ( ~v ) =- p + 2 ~v + ~ f (1) The terms on the left side represent unsteady acceleration (explicit time dependence) and con- vective acceleration (change in velocity with position due to acceleration of fluid particles). The terms on the left are the pressure gradient, viscous effects, and the body force. The version of the equation above uses ~ f , a body force per unit volume. Your book prefers ~ f , an accleration or body force per unit mass. The latter is more convenient when the body force is gravity, which is the usual case. Task 2. Tube Flow a. The appropriate equation is the z-direction N-S equation in cylindrical coordinates with ~ f = 0. v z t + v r v z r + v r v z + v z v z z =- p z + " 1 r r r v z r + 1 r 2 2 v z 2 + 2 v z z 2 # (2) All LHS terms are zero (due to, in order, steady-state assumption, v r = 0, v = 0, and v z is not a function of z ). On the RHS, the final two terms are eliminated since v z is not a function of or z . The equation simplifies (greatly) to: dp dz = r d dr r dv z dr (3) This is a second order ODE, which requires two BCs. The first is that dv z /dr = 0 (or v z ( r )...
