Abstract : The developing flow in the hydrodynamic entrance region of an equilateral triangular channel was investigated. Using a fully developed velocity profile from Knudsen and Katz as a boundary condition, the equations were solved numerically employing the method of Chorin. The resulting velocity profiles and pressure drop were employed in calculating the local friction factor in the hydrodynamic entrance region. (Author)
