Nonlinear effects of transverse gravity field in cavity flow
Abstract
A nonlinear analysis has been made to determine the effects of the transverse gravity field on steady cavity flow past a symmetric wedge. Tulin's (1954) singlespiral model is used to represent the flow and conformal mapping and RiemannHilbert technique have been employed to obtain the numerical solution. The present theory shows that the cavity length for the gravity solution is smaller and lies entirely within the gravityfree case. Also, the change in the drag coefficient from the nongravity case to the gravity case is small.
