(a) Rates of linear and angjular deformation for this flow (b) Expression for the vorticity vector Problem 5.87 [Difficulty: 2] Given: Velocity field for fully-developed flow in a circular tube Find: Solution: We will apply the definition of vorticity to the given velocity field. V Governing Equation: (Definition of vorticity) Assumptions: (1) Steady flow   0 1 1 z V V r r rV r V z r Rates of linear deformation in all three directions is zero. The volume dilation rate of the flow is: The angular deformations are: r- θ plane: 1 r r V θ r θ V
