Elementary Planar Irrotational Flows in Complex Variables Author: John M. Cimbala, Penn State University Latest revision: 17 October 2007 Note : Consider steady, incompressible, irrotational, Newtonian fluid flow in which gravity is neglected. The flow is assumed to be two-dimensional in the x-y or r- θ plane. Summary of the Equations Complex potential: ( ) ( ) () , , wz x y ix y φψ =+ or ( ) ( ) , , r i r φ θψ , where i zxi yr e =+ = , u x y ψ ∂∂ == , v yx , 1 r u rr , and 1 u .
