We studied the pressure driven, steady-state flow of an incompressible fluid through a straight channel, the Poiseuille flow. We found that a constant pressure drop [DELTA]p resulted in a constant flow rate Q.

The mechanism of the formation of the optimal branching pipelines that correspond to Murray's law is obvious, because for the Poiseuille flow the shear rate at the wall is [[tau].sub.w] = 32[mu]Q/([pi][d.sup.3]), so in the optimal tube [[tau].sub.w] = const.
