Using hot water the flow parameters at the inlet pipe are while P0 =110,000 Pa and T0=370K. While Reynolds number: Re=1500, pressure coefficient: PC =6.5 and Prandtl number: Pr = 1.75, Figure 3.1 show the position of a conical ring insert in the cylindrical tube, with the axis indicated. The DCR insert radius is 18mm and the outlet radius is 25mm, with the length along z axis as 70mm.

SOLVING THE DISCRETIZED EQUATIONS
Factoring in the boundary conditions and non dimension numbers for the flow of hot water in a cylindrical tube within the region of the conical ring insert if Δz=0.01, Δr =0.001, axial velocity at the DCR inlet it is uz=4m/s then it starts reducing as radial velocity increases from zero, is the radial distance from the centre of the tube with a singularity existing at . Parameters are predetermined at the centre line with boundary conditions Po=1.1×105Pa, To =370K, Re=1500, Pr =1.75 and PC = 6.5 then the governing equations are solved to obtain the various flow profiles.
Equation (3.4) is expressed as
At the DCR inlet boundary values are estimated from a flow simulation by solid works to reduce the equation and determine radial velocities with change in radial distance. Equation (3.11) is expressed as a tri diagonal matrix to solve the radial velocities.

Values of uz’s provide for differences on the column in the right hand side of figure 3.4 to enable us solve the tri-diagonal matrix given by equation (3.11) to determine the value of ur’s. At the DCR insert inlet k=0 for i=1 to i=18; then at K=1 the rows are tabulated starting from i=1 to i=18 in the diverging conical ring insert where i=0 is on the centre line of our pipe.

which together with uz’s provided in the table 3.1 above are used to solve equation (1) to obtain the pressure profile and equation (2) to obtain temperature profiles within the DCR insert. PRESURE PROFILE
To determine the pressure profile, velocities in axial direction and radial distance are used in equation (1) with the step size in axial and radial direction provided. TEMPERATURE PROFILE
Equation (2) is used to determine temperature variations by substituting non dimensional numbers for the flow and boundary conditions estimated by simulating the flow.
From values generated in equation (1) and the input velocities in the table 3.1, we should be able to plot a graph of skin friction along the pipe from k=0 to k=21 given density of the fluid is ρ = 957.9kg/m3 and Re=1500 to obtain . (3)
For different values of Re ( Reynolds number) we should be able to plot different line graphs.
