I suggest you copy your reply above into a New Discussion and put that in the Fluid Dynamics category where it will have better visibility to the CFD experts.

If you have a uniform entrance velocity, as the boundary layer develops on the walls it slows down fluid near the wall, so the fluid in the center must speed up to maintain the same mass flow rate at the end of the pipe as was entering the pipe.
