Problem 5.1 [Difficulty: 1] Given: The list of velocity fields provided above Find: Which of these fields possibly represent two-dimensional, incompressible flow Solution: We will check these flow fields against the continuity equation 0 t w z v y u x Governing Equations: (Continuity equation) Assumptions: (1) Incompressible flow ( ρ is constant) (2) Two dimensional flow (velocity is not a function of z) Based on the two assumptions listed above, the continuity equation reduces to: x u y v 0 This is the criterion against which we will check all of the flow fields. a) u x y t ( ) 2 x 2 y 2 x 2 y v x y t ( ) x 3 x y 2 4 y x u x y t ( ) 4 x 2 x y y v x y t ( ) x 2 y 4 ( ) Hence x u y v 0 INCOMPRESSIBLE b) u x y t ( ) 2 x y x 2 y v x y t ( ) 2 x

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
