Example Problem 1-26 The space between two very long parallel plates separated by distance,
0.35 m is filled with glycerin at room temperature (20
o
C), as illustrated in Figure EP 1-26. The
lower plate is held stationary, while a continuous tangential (shear) force, F
V
is applied to the
upper plate, thus moving the plate with a constant velocity of 0.25 m/sec. The dimensions of the
upper plate are 2 m by 1 m. (a) Determine if the flow is laminar or turbulent. (b) Graphically
illustrate the velocity profile at the cross section of flow. (c) Graphically illustrate the shear stress
at the cross section of flow. (d) Determine the magnitude of the shear force required to keep the
plate moving at the given constant velocity.
Mathcad Solution:
(a) The fluid properties for glycerin at room temperature (20
o
C) are read from Table A-4 in
Appendix A. In order to determine if the flow is laminar or turbulent, the Reynolds number, R is
computed from Eq. 1-48 as follows:

Thus, because R = 73.678 < 2000, the flow between the two long parallel plates is laminar.
(b) Because the flow between the two long parallel plates is laminar, the velocity profile is
assumed to be linear, and is evaluated by applying Eq. 1-55 as follows:

Note that the shear stress function, (y) was divided by N/m
2
in order to properly display the
correct values for this function. Mathcad plots values in its default (base) units. The base units
for pressure (or shear stress) in the SI system of units is N/m
2
, so Mathcad saves them in N/m
2
.
Thus, in order to properly display the values in N/m
2
, one may divide the shear stress by N/m
2

which essentially removes the units and displays only the values.
(d) The magnitude of the shear force required to keep the plate moving at the given constant
velocity is determined by applying Eq. 1-54 as follows:

Mathcad Solution:
(a) The fluid properties for glycerin at room temperature (68

Note that the shear stress function, (r) was divided by psf in order to properly display the

for pressure (or shear stress) in the BG system of units is psi, so Mathcad saves them in psi.
Thus, in order to properly display the values in psf, one may divide the shear stress by psf, which
essentially removes the units and displays only the values. Alternately, because the pipe flow is
laminar, the shear stress may also be evaluated by Applying Newton's law of viscosity for
laminar flow, Eq. 1-58 as follows:
