By Aina Parasher|Updated : July 7th, 2022

The shear stress across the pipe of circular cross-section is-

1. Constant over the cross-section.
2. Zero at the wall and increases linearly to the center.
3. Zero at the center and varies linearly with the radius.
4. Varies parabolically across the section.

Answer: C. Zero at the center and varies linearly with the radius

## The shear stress across the pipe of circular cross-section is zero at the center and varies linearly with the radius.

Solution

Shear stress and velocity distribution across the pipe of circular cross-section can be expressed as:

Variation of shear stress in radial direction across the pipe of circular cross-section can be expressed as

Τ=-δp/δxr/2

-ve sign shows that pressure decreases in the longitudinal direction of the circular pipe.

Shear stress at center (ie. r=0) is zero

Shear stress at wall of pipe (ie. r=R) is maximum.
