Unformatted text preview: EGM 6812 - Fluid Mechanics I – Fall 2010 12/17/10, Final Exam Name: __________________ _____________ 1/12 Questions:(30 points total, 3 points each, unless otherwise marked) 1. In ideal flow, it is common to employ superposition solutions of various individual solutions to Laplace’s equation in terms of the streamfunction and/or velocity potential. Is it also valid to superimpose pressure fields of each individual solution? Please justify your answer mathematically and/or physically. 2. Consider a left-running gravity wave, ( ) , ( ) x t g x c t η = + . Mathematically determine characteristic line for a given phase front. EGM 6812 - Fluid Mechanics I – Fall 2010 12/17/10, Final Exam Name: __________________ _____________ 2/12 Questions:(30 points total, 3 points each, unless otherwise marked) 3. What are the conditions under which both the streamfunction and the velocity potential identically satisfy Laplace’s equation? Which conservation law is satisfied by solving Laplace’s equation for ideal flow? 4. A 3-D point source has the velocity field, 2 4 r m V r π = . Show that the strength of the point source equals the volumetric flow rate. (6 points) 5. For axisymmetric potential flows in a spherical coordinate system, can you use complex potentials? Justify your answer. EGM 6812 - Fluid Mechanics I – Fall 2010 12/17/10, Final Exam Name: __________________ _____________ 3/12 Questions: (30 points total, 3 points each, unless otherwise marked) 6.
