2
A Newtonian fluid having a specific gravity of 0.92 and a kinematic viscosity = 4 104 ms flows
past a fixed surface. The velocity profile near the surface is shown in figure 1. Determine the magnitude
and the direc

Exercise 1.
Wind with speed V blows perpendicularly to a suspension bridge of length L. The
bridge deck of thickness h disturbs the flow, leading to the periodic release of vortices, the frequency of
which is called the vortex
