Mem. Fac. Eng. Fukui Univ. 49(1), 45-53 (2001).

Abstract: This paper introduces to the early pioneers in the field of laminar flow described by the Hagen Poiseuille law. After giving some biographical information, the experimental setups are briefly explained and the original data are given in the form of diagrams scaled to modern units. Then the way of argument of Hagen, Poiseuille, Hagenbach and others is reviewed. The early historical development of, corrections to, and the scope and limits of the Hagen Poiseuille law receive thus due attention.
