Problem 5.18 [Difficulty: 2] Given: The list of velocity fields provided above Find: Which of these fields possibly represent incompressible flow Solution: We will check these flow fields against the continuity equation    0 1 1 t V z V r V r r r z r Governing Equations: (Continuity equation) Assumptions: (1) Incompressible flow ( ρ is constant) (2) Two dimensional flow (velocity is not a function of z)   0 V r rV r Based on the two assumptions listed above, the continuity equation reduces to: This is the criterion against which we will check all of the flow fields.   0 cos cos U U V r rV r (a) V r U cos θ () V θ U sin θ () This could be an incompressible flow field.
