One method analysing twodimensional steady flow in very low Reynolds number
Abstract
A tracer technique using water glass as the operating fluid is used to experimentally study twodimensional cavity flow at Reynolds number 3.9 x 10 to the 4th in a cavity of somewhat complicated shape. The velocity distribution is examined and the velocity components (u,v) for the (x,y) coordinates are determined. The results are used to calculate the stream function and the vorticity, and the vorticity is used to calculate the pressure. This method can be applied to all steady flows at very low Reynolds number.
