Effect of transition in cross-sectional shape on the development of the velocity and pressure distribution of turbulent flow in pipes

Mayer, Edwin.

With regard to the change in shape of the cross section while the area remains constant, no investigation results are as yet available. Such an investigation will be the subject of the present paper. For this purpose it is necessary to consider the velocity and pressure relations over each entire cross section so that we are confronted with a three-dimensional problem.
