Poiseuille and his law

  title={Poiseuille and his law},
  author={J. Pfitzner},
Comparatively little is known of the life of Jean Leonard Marie Poiseuille (1797-1869) of Paris. He made important contributions to the experimental study of circulatory dynamics but it can hardly be said that Poiseuille knowingly described the law which governs laminar flow. He did however establish, in a series of meticulously executed experiments, that at a given temperature water flow through tubes of very fine bore is inversely proportional to the length of the tube and directly… Expand
A Simple Transient Poiseuille-Based Approach to Mimic the Womersley Function and to Model Pulsatile Blood Flow
As it is known, the Womersley function models velocity as a function of radius and time. It has been widely used to simulate the pulsatile blood flow through circular ducts. In this context, theExpand
Beyond Poiseuille: Preservation Fluid Flow in an Experimental Model
Flows are primarily determined by bag pressure and fluid viscosity; Cannula size made little difference over the ranges examined; future studies examining the impact of perfusion variables on graft outcomes should include detailed equipment descriptions. Expand

It is posited that three physicians (Bernoulli, Young, and Poiseuille) changed the authors' understanding of the natural world, because of their distinctive educational experiences, which I describe below. Expand
Surface Tension and Viscosity of Blood
Blood has certain significant physical properties, which the authors investigated. This paper provides values of surface tension and viscosity of blood at 37◦C, as well as relationship between themExpand
Oscillatory Channel Flow for Newtonian And Non Newtonian Fluids
The flow between parallel porous plates may be driven by the uniform suction/injection at the permeable walls or by the movement of the walls.Sometimes, this flow can also be induced due to theExpand

First law of thermodynamics on the boundary for flow through a carbon nanotube.
The nonequilibrium molecular dynamics (NEMD) simulations in this work investigate the flow characteristics of a simple liquid in a single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT), and equilibrium molecular dynamics simulations support the range of the NEMD results. Expand
Gas and Vapor Transport in Membranes
Abstract Mass transfer is a movement of mass from one location to another. Its driving force is a difference in chemical potential and other thermodynamic gradients may accommodate the mass flow.Expand
Asymptotic solution to the viscous/inertial flow in wavy channels with permeable walls
Flow in a wavy channel immersed in the porous medium can be described neither as the flow in porous media nor as the flow in a regular pipe. The flow through the walls and the irregular wavy geometryExpand
Optimization of the friction factor and frictional pressure drop of R22 and R290
Today, the air-conditioning and refrigeration industry is still searching for the environmentally friendly refrigerants that could replace the hazardous coolants that are ozone depleting –Expand


Jean Leonard Marie Poiseuille
Poiseuille, born and died in Paris, appears to have passed his entire life as unattached (libre) professor of medical physics. He was the son of a carpenter. We know nothing of his primary studiesExpand
