This paper shows how to formulate the transient analysis of 2-dimensional Hagen-Poiseuille flow using smoothed particle hydrodynamics (SPH). Treatments of viscosity, particle approximation and boundary conditions are explained. Numerical tests are calculated to examine effects caused by the number of particles, the number of particles per smoothing length, artificial viscosity and time increments for 2-dimensional Hagen-Poiseuille flow. Artificial viscosity for reducing the numerical instability directly affects the velocity of the flow, though effects of the other parameters do not produce as much effect as artificial viscosity. Numerical solutions using SPH show close agreement with the exact ones for the model flow, but SPH parameter must be chosen carefully. Numerical solutions indicate that SPH is also an effective method for the analysis of 2-dimensional Hagen-Poiseuille flow.
