The behavior of streamlines near separation point and separation criterion
Abstract
The behavior of streamlines near the separation point and the separation criterion of two dimensional noncompressible steady and unsteady flow were studied. The MRS criterion is necessary when the separation flow has two lines v=o passing through the separation point. For the flow described by boundary layer equations, the separation point is generally a Goldstein singularity and the MRS criterion is generaly equivalent to the singularity criterion. However, the separation point is not a singularity for the NavierStokes equations.
