I Pressure change while entering taper of nozzle

  1. Jun 5, 2016 #1
    Assuming incompressible uniform streamlined flow, with fluid flowing from a wide tube into a tapering section then on into a narrow section... Would the be a little kink in the pressure at the junction of the tubes and the taper? Each flow line is accelerating towards the central line, so one may expect that the walls would have to press inwards to bend the flow lines? Of course, in the linear part of the taper the pressure would decrease steadily a la Bernoulli. - so my question is just about the actual transition from constant diameter to the taper.
