Fluid friction inside the pipe Basis: Newton’s law of viscosity yx =  dvx/dy . 2.

Fluid friction: friction coefficient of pipe (due to velocity gradient) .

3. Bernoulli Equation • p1/ + ½ V12 + g h1 = p2/ + ½ V22 + g h2 • This equation correlates 2 different positions in a streamline • Criteria of its validation(syarat): – Incompressible – Inviscid (not viscous) – Steady state • If the fluid is viscous. corrections must be imposed • p1/1 + ½ V12 + g h1 = p2/2 + ½ V22 + g h2+ .

pressure drop is applied to oppose friction on the pipe wall .• Inviscid terminology could mean that the fluid is not affected by the friction between the fluid and a solid surface. • In case of flow inside a pipe.
