Unformatted text preview: ENU 4133 Vorticity and Irrotationality March 7, 2011 Stream Function When only two terms of the continuity equation are nonzero, it is possible to develop an equation for a single variable (the stream function, ). Ignore cases where one of the nonzero terms is / t . Incompressible, Cartesian: u x + v y = 0 (1) u = y (2) v = x (3) x y + y x = 0 (4) Steam Function (2) ~ V = ~ i y ~ j x (5) ~ V = ~ k 2 (6) ~ V = ~ k 2 x 2 + 2 y 2 (7) Stream Function along Streamline Along streamline in 2D flow: dx u = dy v (8) udy vdx = 0 (9) x dx + y dy = 0 (10) d = 0 (11) Therefore, is constant along a streamline. Other Cases Compressible, Cartesian: u = y (12) v = x (13) 0 = x ( u ) + y ( v ) (14) Incompressible flow in r plane: v r = 1 r (15) v =...
