Pipe Flow Example Water flows steadily into the circular pipe with a uniform inlet velocity profile as shown. Due to the presence of viscosity, the velocity immediately adjacent to the inner pipe wall becomes zero and this phenomenon is called the no-slip boundary condition. It is found out that the velocity distribution reaches a parabolic profile at a distance downstream of the entrance and can be represented as V 1 (r)=V max [1-(r/R) 2 ], where V max is the velocity at the center of the pipe and r is the radial distance measured away from the center axis. Use the mass conservation equation, determine V max. V O P O R: radius of pipe V 1 (r )=V max [1-(r/R) 2 ] P 1
