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

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
