Unformatted text preview: 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 sin 2- = = (1) The quantity is called the doublet strength. When this doublet is superposed over a uniform flow parallel to the x- axis, we get: r y u 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 . Then, equation (2) becomes: sin 1 2 1 sin 2 sin 2 r r u u r r u - =- = (3) If we replace the constant u 2 by a new constant R 2 , the above equation becomes: 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 radius R), the stream function is zero....
