AE 3003 Chapter III. Part III Flow over a Circular Cylinder In the previous handout we derived the following equation for the doublet: r Doublet θ π μ ψ sin 2 - = = (1) The quantity μ is called the doublet strength. When this doublet is superposed over a uniform flow parallel to the x- axis, we get: r y u θ π μ ψ sin 2 - = (2) The above equation contains some terms in the Cartesian coordinate system, while the second term is in the polar coordinate system. To avoid unnecessary confusion, we express y as rsin θ . Then, equation (2) becomes: θ π μ θ π μ θ ψ sin 1 2 1 sin 2 sin 2 r r u u r r u - = - = (3) If we replace the constant u π μ 2 by a new constant R 2 , the above equation becomes: θ ψ sin 1 2 2 r r R u - = (4) Let us examine this equation. At all points where r=R (i.e. at all points on a circle of radius R), the stream function is zero. Secondly, taking the derivative of the above stream

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
