A short-time asymptotic solution is developed for the dispersion of a passive solute in the fully developed laminar flow of a Newtonian fluid through a straight circular tube. The new solution describes the axial dependence of the average concentration both near the leading and trailing edges of the concentration distribution, and it predicts the existence of a pronounced maximum near the trailing edge.
