Wave mechanism for controlling the flow of a viscous incompressible fluid in a pipeline
Abstract
A numerical treatment is applied to the problem of exciting travelingwave oscillations of small amplitude in the axisymmetric laminar nonturbulent flow of a viscous incompressible fluid in a circular pipe. Distributions of mean longitudinal velocity are obtained for the secondary oscillating flow in the case of steady state flow and in the case of Poiseuille flow. It is shown that oscillations traveling along the wall can significantly change the persecond flow rate of the fluid passing through the pipeline. In particular acceleration can be achieved at certain values of wave parameters.
