Abstract

We consider both the axisymmetric and planar steady-state Poiseuille flows of weakly compressible Newtonian fluids, under the assumption that both the density and the shear viscosity vary linearly with pressure. The primary flow variables, i.e. the two non-zero velocity components and the pressure, as well as the mass density and viscosity of the fluid are represented as double asymptotic expansions in which the isothermal compressibility and the viscosity–pressure-dependence coefficient are taken as small parameters. A standard perturbation analysis is performed and asymptotic, analytical solutions for all the variables are obtained up to second order. These results extend the solutions of the weakly compressible flow with constant viscosity and those of the incompressible flow with pressure-dependent viscosity. The combined effects of compressibility and the pressure dependence of the viscosity are analyzed and discussed.
