Abstract
This study focused on fully laminar flow of an incompressible viscous fluid in a uniformly porous pipe with suction and injection. An exact solution of the NavierStokes equations is given. The velocity field can be expressed in a series form in terms of modified Bessel function of the first kind of order n. The volume flux across a plane normal to the flow, the vorticity and the stress on the boundary are presented. The flow properties depend on the Reynolds number, U a / ,where U is the suction velocity, a is the radius of the pipe and is the kinematic viscosity. It is found that for large values of the crossReynolds number, the flow near the region of the suction shows a boundary layer character. In this region the velocity and vorticity vary sharply. Outside the boundary layer, the velocity and the vorticity do not show an appreciable change.
