Abstract: The flow of concentric layers of incompressible and immiscible viscous fluids in a pipe is modelled and studied. Such a flow model has great significance both theoretically and in applications to the petroleum and chemical industries. The exact solutions for velocity fields and volume flow rates are presented and it is shown that a unique maximum velocity always exists in the core of the pipe for any number of fluid layers. The volume flow rate of two-layer flows in a channel is also found to be controllable by using immiscible fluids of different viscosities. The effects of appropriate parameters on the velocity profiles are presented graphically for two-layer and multi-layer flows.

Keywords: Multi-layer channel flows; Immiscible fluids; Exact solutions
