Prompt what assign the border conditions for pipe of the constant section that velocity of the material moving inwardly pipes was constant (0.02 м/с) on the whole length.

Again, probably bad interpreter conveyed meaning:
What boundary conditions are put on the input and output for the speed in the pipe was at a constant level (0,02 m / s) As the flow  water.

Sorry, I still don't understand what you are asking.
Are you asking what boundary conditions to put on a pipe flowing at 0.02m/s? If so then read the documentation, it describes the choice of boundary conditions. Usually you want a velocity inlet and a pressure outlet.

with these conditions do not get a flat rate with the peaks (drawing), it is necessary that the rate remained constant over the length.

Is "z" the centerline velocity? Could you give us some more information about the simulation? Maybe you could post a picture of the domain, mesh, etc.

Unfortunately, I'm away from the office until July 19 and don't have access to CFX. Sorry, Sas.

And I don't look at res files from the forum. Can you post the CCL of your simulation?
Your graph has the value varying between 0.02001 and 0.01998. If you are asking why isn't it 0.02 then a) you have not converged far enough, b) use double precision numerics and c) it will always have some variation due to a numerical solution being used.

It does not let me download it. Can you post the CCL on the forum?

So it looks like you are doing a simple flow analysis with free slip walls and are wondering why the velocity is not 0.02m/s everywhere. Why did you not say this?
The answer is simple. Your convergence is very loose. Converge tighter.

that is, as I understand you must install Residual Target less than 1.E4 (1.E5 or 1.E6)?

Converge as tight as you need to get the accuracy you want.
