Chapter 8 Potential Flow and Computational Fluid Dynamics 8.1 Prove that the streamlines ψ (r, θ ) in polar coordinates, from Eq. (8.10), are orthogonal to the potential lines φ ). Solution: The streamline slope is represented by r streamline potential line dr v / r rd v (1/r)( / ) dr ∂φ ∂ θ∂φ == = ⎛⎞ ⎜⎟ ⎝⎠ | 1 Since the slope = 1 /( slope), the two sets of lines are orthogonal . Ans. 8.2 The steady plane flow in the figure has the polar velocity components v = Ω r and vr = 0. Determine the circulation Γ around the path shown. Solution: Start at the inside right corner, point A, and go around the complete path: Fig. P8.2 ππ Γ= = + v 21 22 12 1 1 0( ) ( ) 0( ) ( ) R RR R R R Vd s ( ) or: . Ans Γ= Ω π 8.3 Using cartesian coordinates, show that each velocity component (u, v, w) of a potential flow satisfies Laplace’s equation separately if 2 = 0. Solution: This is true because the order of integration may be changed in each case: ∂φ ∂∂ ∇= = ∇ = = 2 Example: ( ) (0) 0 . xx x uA n s 8.4 Is the function 1/r a legitimate velocity potential in plane polar coordinates? If so, what is the associated stream function )?
