Problem 105P

For the axisymmetric Poiseuille flow of Prob. 4-108. calculate the linear strain rates in the x- and r-directions, and calculate the shear strain rate ɛxr. The strain rate tensor in cylindrical coordinates (r, θ. x) and (ur,uθ. ux). is PROBLEM: Consider fully developed axisymmetric Poiseuille flow—flow in a round pipe of radius R(diameter D = 2 R), with a forced pressure gradient dP/dx driving the flow as illustrated in Fig. P11–53. (dP/dx is constant and negative.) The flow is steady, incompressible, and axisymmetric about the x-axis. The velocity components are given by where μ is the fluid’s viscosity. Is this flow rotational or irrotational? If it is rotational, calculate the vorticity component in the circumferential (θ) direction and discuss the sign of the rotation. FIGURE P11-53

Step-by-Step Solution:

## Step 1 of 4

The velocity component of the flow is given. Using the velocity component calculate the linear strain in x and r direction, that is calculate and . Also calculate the shear strain .
