Calculations of axisymmetric swirling flows by the use of parabolic type equations
Abstract
Numerical solutions of boundary layer like equations are presented for steady, axisymmetric swirling flows in a pipe; the fluid is incompressible. Calculations were performed for combinations of two parameters; Wa and Omega are the velocity on the axis and the swirl strength at the upstream boundary, respectively. One of the solutions was in qualitative agreement, over some axial distance, with earlier NavierStokes calculations obtained by the authors.
