Question 1 Show that form where w = f(z) is a complex potential function. Using transformation of the , where , show that the flow over a circle of radius a (where ) can be

transformed into the flow over an ellipse. A number of irrotational flows are given by complex potential function in the usual notation as follows: (i) (ii) (iii)

Find the stream function and the potential function for these complex potential functions and describe the flow represented by each function. Answers:

## will transform using

as follows,

Using relationship cos2 " + sin 2 " = 1, gives which is an equation for an ellipse

!
Therefore flow over a cylinder will transform into a flow over an ellipse.

## , and Doublet flow

Question 2 Refer to the illustration of flow around a cylinder in Fig. 1. The stream-function for inviscid flow around a cylinder is given as:

## The radial and axial velocities are given by: .

(i) (ii)

Figure 1. Calculate the radial and axial velocity. State the maximum velocity and the position(s) it occurs? State the position(s) of the stagnation point(s). Prove the cylinder has no lift.

## Maximum velocity occurs when

i.e

, gives

is zero.

## =0 Therefore the cylinder has no lift

Question 3 For thin aerofoil theory applied to a camber line z(x), the vortex distribution

Show that

and the aerodynamics center is at the quarter chord for all thin aerofoil.

A particular camber line has upper surface pressure distribution at ideal angle of attack given by

Question 5 Consider an incompressible flow, laminar boundary layer growing along the surface of a flat plate, with a chord length c, as sketch in Fig. 2.For an incompressible flow, laminar, flat plate boundary layer, the boundary layer thickness " at the trailing edge of the plate is

Assume that the velocity profile through the boundary layer is given by a power-law variation

Calculate the value of n, consistent with the information given above. Using the lower value of n, determine whether the flow is rotational or irritational. Answer: Look at Example 2.2

With

Question 6 A Joukowski airfoil is formed by displacing a circle of radius 1 by !x = -0.08 (real axis) and !y = 0.05 (imaginary axis) as in Fig. 3. Find, a) Vortex strength " if ! = 0o, and V" = 10 m/s b) CL at ! = 0o and ! = 10o y

In complex terms the flow past a cylinder with lift is written: where

, .or

The appropriate vortex strength to impose the Kutta condition must be determined. Consider the lifting flow about a cylinder. The velocity in the # direction is, when Here, R is the radius of the cylinder surface. This velocity is zero on the surface of the cylinder at the stagnation points. At the these points .

If the field is rotated by ! to simulate an angle of attack, Since the chord length of the Joukowski airfoil is 4b, the lift coefficient can be written,

## \$ = 4%V"R&sin(!+') = 4%(20)(1)sin(2.87) = 12.566

b) CL at ! = 0o and ! = 10o CL = 2%sin(2.87) = 0.31415 CL = 2%sin(10 + 2.87) = 1.40
