Read the questions carefully. Notice that the ﬂuid is viscous in some problems,
inviscid in others. Inviscid means the viscosity is zero, µ = ν = 0. Good luck.

2D Potential Flow
Bernoulli’s principle
Poiseuille Flow 14 This is a closed book exam. Please read each question carefully. Please also show your
work and explain your reasoning as this helps in understanding your answer and the award
of partial credit. Formula are attached. Problem 1 1. (30 Points) For twodimensional potential ﬂow, the divergence and curl of the ﬂow
vanishes, i.e. ∇ · U = ∇ × U = 0. The steady ﬂow can be represented by a
ˆ
velocity potential, U ≡ ∇φ, or a stream function, U ≡ −z × ∇ψ . Since φ and
ψ satisfy Laplace’s equation, the ﬂow can be represented on the complex plane,
z = x + iy = reıθ , by an analytic function called the “complex velocity potential”,
w(z ) ≡ φ + iψ . When w(z ) = Az n , w(z ) represents the ﬂow around or inside a corner located at
(x, y ) = (0, 0). Show that (i) when n < 1, the ﬂow passes over the “outside” of a
corner having an angle greater than 180◦ , and (ii) when n > 1, the ﬂow passes on
the “inside” of a corner having an angle less than 180◦ .
For each case, n > 1 and n < 1, determine whether the ﬂuid velocity increases or
decreases when approaching the corner. J Q fl .. o0 .) .. 'i ~ .. oJ 01 .J ~ \. " 0 h IN i'~ V ii" ;:' '"', ," 3 0 ,J

15 Problem 2
1 2. (35 points) An incompressible liquid of density, ρ1 , is ﬂowing through a tube at a
volumetric rate of Q. The tube crosssectional area as two parts. On the entrance
side, the area is A1 , and on the exit side the area is A2 (with A2 > A1 .)
A “Utube” is connected to the tube as shown in the ﬁgure below. The Utube is
partially ﬁlled with a liquid of density ρ2 , which is denser than the ﬂuid ﬂowing
through the tube, ρ2 > ρ1 . The two ﬂuids do not mix.
The diﬀererence between the heights of the upstream and downstream sides of the
Utube is h. Your problem : Derive an expression for h in terms of Q, A1 , A2 , ρ1 , ρ2 ,
and g , the acceleration of gravity.
[Hint: The ﬂuid in the Utube is in a state of hyrdostatic equilibrium, where pressure
gradients balance gravitational forces. The pressure must be constant where the Utube connects to the tube with ﬂowing ﬂuid.] 16 Figure 2: For Question 2. Tube with Utube connected. Problem 3
3. (35 points) A viscous ﬂuid ﬂows at a steady rate through a tube with an elliptical
crosssection. See ﬁgure below.
What is the relation between the volumetric ﬂow rate, Q, through the tube and
the axial rate of pressure drop, dP/dz , in terms of the dimensions of the tube and
the ﬂuid viscosity. (You may leave integrals unevaluated, provided they are deﬁned
fully.)
Show that the pressure gradient is balanced by a viscous force.
[Note: You do not have to evaluate any expressions for any integral. Just deﬁne
them fully.] y z
