 March 16, 2006, 00:42 Re: subsonic flow #2 vijesh joshi Guest   Posts: n/a I think you are talking about nozzles. in converging nozzle, due to decrease in area as you move in along its length, velocity increases. In diverging nozzle velocity decreases. Because, velocity is inversly proportional to c/s area. AND IN converging-diverging nozzle, the case will be interesting. go through fluid mechanics book.

 March 16, 2006, 10:17 Re: subsonic flow #4 ag Guest   Posts: n/a With friction the boundary layer growth causes a reduction in the cross-sectional flow area. This area change is what causes the flow to accelerate if it is subsonic, and decelerate if supersonic. In a sense, the flow "thinks" it is in a nozzle, and if the duct is long enough, the flow approaches M = 1.
