Fluid Flow Through a Pipe

  1. Mar 11, 2009 #1
    Here's my situation:

    I have a long pipe with n amount of openings along the top, that have an equal distance apart. At one end of the pipe a constant pressure is applied by a pump, and the pipe has a constant diameter all the way to downstream. I’m trying to find a mass flow rate by changing the hole diameters by a delta, where we assume dn(hole diameter) = dinitial + (n-1)*delta. Is it possible to find a delta such that I can get the same volume flow rate out of each hole?
