Variation of flow properties
The flow properties (P,T,ρ,C)at M=M*=1are used as reference values for non-dimensionalizing various properties at any section of the duct.
Stagnation temperature –Mach number relation
At critical state
T0 = T0*
Variation of Mach number with duct length
The duct length required for the flow to pass from a given initial mach number M1 to a given final mach number m2can be obtained from the following expression.
Mean friction coefficient with respect to duct length is given by
The distance (L) between two section of duct where the ach numbers M1 &M2 are given by
1. Air flows through a pipe of 300 mm diameter. At inlet temperature is 35 C, pressure is 0.6 bar and stagnation pressure is 12 bar.At a location 2 m down stream, the static pressure is 0.89 bar.Estimate the average friction coefficient between two section.

Question – 3 :- Air is flowing in an insulated duct with a Mach number of M1 = 0.25. At a section downstream the entropy is greater by amount 0.124 units, as a result of friction. What is the Mach number of this section? The static properties at inlet are 700KPa and 600C. Find velocity, temperature and pressure at exit. Fin d the properties at the critical section.
Given Data: M1 = 0.25; (S2 – S1) = 0.124 KJ/ Kg K; P1 = 700 KPa; T1 = 60 +273 = 333K
We know that,
