poiseuille

[pwä′zə·ē]
(fluid mechanics)
A unit of dynamic viscosity of a fluid in which there is a tangential force of 1 newton per square meter resisting the flow of two parallel layers past each other when their differential velocity is 1 meter per second per meter of separation; equal to 10 poise; used chiefly in France. Abbreviated Pl.

The relevance of such data is that, according to the Poiseuille law, the fluid flow inside a tube is contingent on the bore and the length of the tube and the pressure gradient established between its ends (Tattersall, Traill, & Gleeson, 2000).
Therefore, we use a simplified form of the governing equation for Poiseuille flow in a rectangular duct as below (Wereley and Pang, 1998).
In many cases it is acceptable to assume a simplified model of the capillary flow based on the Poiseuille model, which is derived for viscous fluid [24].
