Unformatted text preview: Fluid Dynamics 3 2011/12 Sheet 9 Homework to be handed in 16th December: questions 1,3,5. 1. Consider a twodimensional channel with walls located at y = 0 and y = . A point vortex with circulation > 0 is placed at z = ib , with 0 < b < . (i) Write down the complex potential for the flow in the channel, generated by the vortex. (ii) Show that the vortex moves parallel to the channel walls, at speed 4 cot b . Hint: the contribution coming from the vortex inside the channel has to be subtracted. 2. Once more consider a vortex with circulation > 0 in a channel, but find the complex potential for the flow using the method of images. For simplicity, let the vortex be at z = 0 in the centre of the channel, whose walls are at at y = i/ 2 and y = i/ 2. (i) Show that to satisfy the boundary conditions at both walls, image vortices are needed at z n = in, n Z . (ii) Show that the complex potential is w ( z ) = i 2 summationdisplay n = ( 1) n ln( z...
