Fluids Problem F8 F8. A cascade of vanes turns the airﬂow around each corner of the Wright Brothers Wind
Tunnel. Assume the ﬂow parameters are:
constant air density:
upstream air velocity:
upstream ﬂow angle:
downstream ﬂow angle: � = 1.2 kg/m3
V = 30 m/s
h = 0.4 m
b = 2.5 m
−45� Determine the force on each vane. Again, clearly draw a suitable control volume for your
analysis. h V ...
