The problem is as follows:

Fluid enters a section of a square cross sectioned pipe which undergoes an area expansion of 1:4. The flow is uniform and laminar at the inlet and fully developed before entering the expansion and at the outlet. Provide a mathimatical model which describes the unique flow through the pipe.

By assuming steady state, incompressible, uniform flow with no body force in the direction of motion I can simplyfy considerably however I do not know how to take into account flow separation at the divergance nor how to justify properly my assumptions :S

anyone help pleaseee
