A theoretical and experimental investigation of the flow in a porous tube with wall suction is described. The flow is steady, laminar, and incompressible with the fluid entering at one end of the circular tube and flowing out through the porous circumferential surface. The study is limited to an inlet velocity profile parabolic in shape and to the case of uniform wall suction.
