    Energy required to transport fluid through tube

    We have a tube (rigid or compliant) filled with a fluid (Newtonian or non-Newtonian). We apply a pressure drop and mobilize the fluid. What is the amount of energy required to transport a certain amount of fluid. I am looking for a general answer which takes into account both the type of fluid and type of tube otherwise it is straightforward to get an answer for the special cases.

    Re: Energy required to transport fluid through tube

    Calculating the friction of fluid flow in a pipe is a big subject. Factors to consider include the flow's Reynolds number, turbulent versus non-turbulent flow, and pipe roughness. I suggest you start by reviewing the following site, and if you have further follow-up questions we'll try our best to answer them:
