Unformatted text preview: Quick Visit to Bernoulli Land Although we have seen the Bernoulli equation and seen it derived before, this next note shows its derivation for an uncompressible & inviscid flow. The derivation follows that of Kuethe &Chow most closely (I like it better than Anderson). 1 Start from inviscid, incompressible momentum equation 1 u u u p t + = K K K There is a vector calculus identity: ( ) 2 , 1 2 vorticity u u u u u = K K K K K K 2 1 1 2 u u p u t + + = K K K K From here, we can make the final re-arrangement: 2 1 2 u p u u t + = K K K K Two common applications: 1. Steady irrotational flow N Irrotational Steady u t = = K K 2 2 1 2 1 . 2 p u p u const for entire flow + = + = K K 1 Kuethe and Chow, 5 th Ed.

If we dot product this into the streamwise direction: u u s K K K streamwise direction ( ) ( ) 2 0, 2 2 1 2 1 2 1 . 2 u u s p u s u d p u ds p u const along streamline = + = + = + = K K K K K K K K K K Vortex Panel Methods 2 Step#1: Replace airfoil surface with panels Step #2: Distribute singularities on each panel with unknown strengths In our case we will use vortices distributed such that their strength varies linearly from node to node: Recall a point vortex at the origin is: 1 tan 2 2 y x = = 2 Kuethe and Chow, 5 th Ed.
