An Analytical Solution for Unsteady Laminar Flow in Tubes with a Tapered Wall Thickness

Transient fluid flows through tubes are critical in such topics as water hammer, ram pumps and pipeline dynamics. While analytical solutions exist in the literature for simple geometries such as tapered and non-tapered tube diameters, one area that is lacking is the case where the wave speed changes...
