In order to verify the validity of the temperature calculation of the previous section, the die pressure was calculated considering a Poiseuille flow in the die of length (L = 4 mm) and diameter (D = 4 mm) according to:
Flow quantification was always assessed, as anticipated above, by applying the formula of Poiseuille.
As a matter of fact, it has been found that this law allows describing not only the concentration gradient driven mass transport but also other important laws of physics: for instance Ohm's electric conductivity or Fourier's heat conductivity or Poiseuille pressure laws [14].
No transition has yet occurred in the fully developed Poiseuille region under small to medium amplitude disturbances.
In the present experiments, the Rayleigh number never exceeded 1160, thus Poiseuille flow prevailed throughout the plain channel.
Este principio se evalua matematicamente con la ecuacion de Poiseuille, en la cual el flujo es directamente proporcional a la diferencia de presiones multiplicado por la cuarta potencia del radio del tubo, e inversamente proporcional a la longitud del tubo y viscosidad del gas.
Observation of aspherical particle rotation in poiseuille flow via the resistance pulse technique.
This rests upon the Poiseuille equation, which demonstrates that resistance to flow of gas through a tube is directly proportional to length, while being inversely proportional to the radius of the tube to the fourth power (when flow is laminar).
The Poiseuille flow of couple stress fluid has been critically examined by Chaturani and Rathod [5].
