530.328 - Fluid Mechanics II Spring 2009 Homework #4 – Potential Flow - Due date: Thursday April 2 1. Determine whether the Bernoulli equation can be applied between different radii for the vortex flow fields (a) (b) r . 2. A plane source, of strength q, is located near a 90˚ corner. The source is equidistant h from each of the two infinite corner planes. Find the velocity potential and stream function of this flow. And then find the pressure distribution along one of the corner planes by assuming at infinity. 3. A flow field can be represented by stream function . Find the velocity field. Is this flow field irrotational? If it is, find the potential function.

Unformatted text preview: 4. The velocity field for a 2-D flow is . (in which A=3 , B=1 , t is in seconds and the coordinates are in meters. Is the flow steady or unsteady? Is it incompressible flow? Find the velocity potential if the flow irrotational. 5. A tornado can be modeled by combing a sink, of strength q=3000 , and a free vortex, of strength K=6000 . Obtain the stream function and velocity potential for this flow field. Estimate the radius beyond which the flow can be treated as incompressible. (Criterion: the distance beyond which the velocity is less than 30% of sound speed). Then find the gage pressure at that radius....

    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.
