Angular Motion and Deformation For simplicity we will consider motion in the x–y plane, but the results can be readily extended to the more general case. 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Chapter 6 Professor Fred Stern Fall 2006 3 3 Angular motion and deformation of a fluid element The angular velocity of line OA , ω OA , is lim OA t t δ δα ω δ → = For small angles ( ) tan v x x t v t x x δ δ δα δα δ δ ∂ ∂ ∂ ≈ = = ∂ so that ( ) lim OA t v x t v t x δ δ ω δ → ∂ ∂ ⎡ ⎤ ∂ = = ⎢ ⎥ ∂ ⎣ ⎦ Note that if ∂ v / ∂ x is positive, ω OA will be counterclockwise. Similarly, the angular velocity of the line OB is lim OB t u t y δ δβ ω δ → ∂ = = ∂ In this instance if ∂ u / ∂ y is positive, ω OB will be clockwise. 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes Chapter 6 Professor Fred Stern Fall 2006 4 4 The rotation, ω z , of the element about the z axis is defined as the average of the angular velocities ω OA and ω OB of the two mutually perpendicular lines OA and OB . Thus, if counterclockwise rotation is considered to be positive, it follows that 1 2 z v u x y ω ⎛ ⎞ ∂ ∂ = − ⎜ ⎟ ∂ ∂ ⎝ ⎠ Rotation of the field element about the other two coordinate axes can be obtained in a similar manner: 1 2 x w v y z ω ⎛ ⎞ ∂ ∂ = − ⎜ ⎟ ∂ ∂ ⎝ ⎠ 1 2 y u w z x ω ∂ ∂ ⎛ ⎞ = − ⎜ ⎟ ∂ ∂ ⎝ ⎠ The three components, ω x , ω y , and ω z can be combined to give the rotation vector, ω , in the form: 1 1 2 2 x y z curl ω ω ω = + + = = ∇ × ω i j k V V since 1 1 2 2 x y z u v w ∂ ∂ ∂ ∇ × = ∂ ∂ ∂ i j k V 1 1 1 2 2 2 w v u w v u y z z x x y ⎛ ⎞ ⎛ ⎞ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ⎛ ⎞ = − + − + − ⎜ ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ ⎜ ⎟ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ ⎝ ⎠ ⎝ ⎠ ⎝ ⎠ i j k 57:020 Mechanics of Fluids and Transport Processes...
