Lecture F15 Mud: Uniform ﬂow, sources, sinks, doublets (27 respondents) 1. In the freestream+source case, if V increases, will the picture change? (1 student) The streamline pattern depends only on the ratio Λ /V . So let’s say you double both Λ and V , all the velocities will double, but the streamline pattern won’t change. If you change only V , then the streamline pattern will change. 2. How do we model more complicated ﬂows like airfoils or wings? (2 students) With more complicated arrangements of sources, sinks, vortices, and doublets. The most complicated 3-D models might have thousands of sources or doublets. The nec- essary bookkeeping must be done by computer programs. 3. How do we select the source, sink, doublet, etc. required to model a speci±c ﬂow? (2 students) In our examples we superimposed a source or doublet of prescribed strength with a freestream of prescribed strength. We then obtained the shape of the implied body via the dividing streamline. In aerodynamic applications, the problem is somewhat in
