Problem 2.15 [Difficulty: 2] Given: Velocity field Find: Proof that the parametric equations for particle motion are x p c 1 e At = and y p c 2 e 2A t = ; pathline that was at (2,2) at t = 0; compare to streamline through same point, and explain why they are similar or not. Solution: Governing equations: For pathlines u p dx dt = v p dy dt = For streamlines v u dy dx = Assumption: 2D flow Hence for pathlines u p dx dt = Ax = v p dy dt = y = So, separating variables dx x Adt = dy y dt = Integrating ln x () A t C 1 + = ln y () 2A t C 2 + = xe C 1 + = e C 1 e = c 1 e = ye t C 2 + = e C 2 e t = c 2 e t = The pathlines are xc 1 e = yc 2 e t = Eliminating t 2 e t
