 September 4, 2008, 15:35 axisymmetrical flow #1 sara Guest   Posts: n/a Dear my friends I want to validate my result in two dimentional laminar axisymmetrical flow.but my result show center velocity(umax) is 1.5 mean velocity(umax=1.5*umean).I read in fluid mechanic references in internal laminar flow in pipe that respect is 2 (umax=2*umean). could anyone tell me axisymmetrical flow's result is equal to intennal flow in pipe and what is correct result. best regards sara

 September 5, 2008, 08:46 Re: axisymmetrical flow #4 ag Guest   Posts: n/a If you are running a 2D axisymmetric laminar calculation, then the max velocity should be twice the mean. If you have fully 3D flow (with nonzero velocity components in all 3 directions) then the max velocity may not be twice the mean.

 September 5, 2008, 15:02 Re: axisymmetrical flow #6 ag Guest   Posts: n/a I don't understand what you are asking for here - the classic laminar result is that the max velocity is twice the mean, whether I compute it or not. I don't have your code, so I have no way of determining where your error is. I would suggest that you first make sure that the velocity profile has a parabolic shape. If your velocity profile is correct, then the error may be where you compute the average velocity.
