We establish the mathematical validity of the Prandtl boundary-layer theory for a family of (nonlinear) parallel pipe flow. The convergence is verified under various Sobolev norms, including the physically important space-time uniform norm, as well as the L (H 1) norm. Higher-order asymptotics is also studied.
