If you accept the tolerance normally accepted for engineering problems, the answer could be yes. That is because CFD is never 100% accurate.

If we consider the the flow in the straight pipe. If we must consider the continuty equation. Output flow speed should be equal with Input flow speed So, there is no energy loss. The pressure become is zero. This is my simple question. Regards,

If you have no-slip boundaries, then there will be pressure variation. You can actually solve for the fully-developed velocity profile analytically. This will also give you the pressure variation. -- Jarmo
