Unformatted text preview: eformation rates that correspond to the motions and deformations Given an equation for the velocity field, be able to calculate: o The rate of rotation o The linear strain rate o The volumetric strain rate, and determine if the flow is incompressible o The shear strain rate o The vorticity vector, and determine if the flow is rotational or irrotational o Whether there is a stagnation point and where it is o An equation for the streamlines of the flow Be able to explain what streamlines and streamtubes are, and how they limit fluid motion Be able to explain what a profile plot is and how to read it. Be able to explain how the Reynolds Transport Theorem can be used to relate a system approach to a control volume approach. Topic 5 Be able to explain how mass, energy, and momentum can enter and leave a control volume.
