I did steady state analysis in a pipe.

I need some clarification on pressure in the cfx post.I beg your pardon to ask the fundamental question.
in my result

The pressure is varying from inlet to outlet.

The flow velocity is constant then why the pressure is not uniform for the entire length?

The following is my setup.
LIBRARY:
CEL:
EXPRESSIONS:
vin = 2*0.1[m s^-1]*(1-r^2/(0.0015[m])^2)
END

Option = Value

Option = Non Newtonian Model
NON NEWTONIAN VISCOSITY MODEL:

Option = Bird Carreau
Power Law Index = 0.3568
Time Constant = 3.313 [s]
