Flow Similarity

1. Consider two different flow fields over two different bodies. By definition,

different flows are dynamically similar if: -

(a) The streamline patterns are geometrically similar.

(b) The distributions of V/Vώ , p/pώ , T/Tώ , etc., throughout the flow

field are the same when plotted against common non-dimensional

coordinates.

(c) The force coefficients are the same.

(a) The bodies and any other solid boundaries are geometrically similar for

both flows.

(b) The similarity parameters are the same for both flows.

3. Re and Mώ are two parameters, which are by far the dominant similarity

parameters. If two or more flows are similar, then the force coefficients CL, CD, etc., are

the same.

Types of Flow

(a) Continuum Vs Free Molecule Flow

(b) Inviscid Vs Viscous Flow

(c) Incompressible Vs Compressible Flow: -

Mach Number Regimes

(i) Subsonic Flow M<0.8

(ii) Transonic Flow 0.8<M<1

(iii) Transonic Flow 1<M<1.2

(iv) Supersonic Flow M>1.2

(v) Hypersonic Flow M>5.

(d) Viscous Flow: Laminar Vs Turbulent Flow

(a) The mean distance that a molecule travels between collision with neighboring

molecules is defined as Mean free path.

(b) If mean free path is orders of magnitude smaller than the size of body, then

flow appears to the body as continuous substance. Molecules impact the body

surface so frequently that the body cannot distinguish the individual molecular

collisions and that surface feels the fluid as a continuous medium. Such flow

is called Continuum flow.

(c) If (a) is on the same order as the body scale, body surface can feel distinctly

each molecular impact. Such flow called Free molecular flow.

(d) Space shuttles encounter free molecular flow at the extreme outer edge of the

atmosphere. Where the air density is too low that becomes on the order of the

shuttle size.

(a) Flow in which the density r is constant is called incompressible.

(b) Flow where the density is variable is called compressible.

(c) Generally low velocity (M<0.3) flows are incompressible and high velocity

flows are compressible.

(d) Incompressible flow data can be used for compressible flow after applying a

correction factor. Correction factor most widely used is known as Prandtl-

Glauert compressibility correction

(e) It is limited to thin airfoil at small angle of attack, up to Mach no = 0.7

7. Viscous flow

(a) All real flows, which exhibit the effect of transport phenomena are called

viscous flow.

(b) Velocity and temperature of the fluid near to the solid body is changing.

(c) This is called no slip condition.

(d) Flow adjacent to the body surface is considered to be viscous. This region is

called boundary layer. Beyond the boundary layer flow is inviscid.

(e) Boundary Layer. Frictional shear stress exists at any point in a flow

where there is a velocity gradient across streamlines. For most problems in

aerodynamics, the local shear stress has a meaningful effect on the flow only

where the velocity gradients are substantial. For the vast region of the flow field

away from the body, the velocity gradients are relatively small and friction plays

virtually no role. For the thin region of the flow adjacent to the surface, however

the velocity gradients are large and friction plays a defining role. Prandtl’s

concept of boundary layer recognizes these two regions of flow. Thus theoretical

analysis of most aerodynamic flows have treated the region away from the body

as an inviscid flow (i.e., no dissipative effects due to friction, thermal conduction,

or mass diffusion) and the thin region immediately adjacent to the body surface as

a viscous flow where these dissipative effects are included. The thin viscous

region adjacent to the body is called the boundary layer. This layer is the source

of friction drag on an aerodynamic body. Also the phenomena of flow separation

is associated with the presence of boundary layer. If the airfoil is inclined to a

high incidence angle to the flow (high angle of attack), then the boundary layer

will tend to separate from the top surface, and a large wake is formed

downstream. Flow separation dramatically changes the pressure distribution over

the surface resulting in a large increase in drag called pressure drag.

8. Inviscid Flow:

(a) Flow that is assumed to involve no friction, thermal conduction or diffusion

(no transport phenomena).

(b) Reynolds number is very high.

(c) Inviscid flows do not exist in nature.

(d) Many practical aerodynamic flows can be assumed as inviscid.

(e) Velocity and temperature of the fluid near to the solid body is not affected by

the presence of the wall.

(f) This is called slip condition.

(a) If the path lines of various fluid elements are smooth and regular, the flow is

called as laminar flow.

(b) If the motion of fluid element is very irregular and tortuous, the flow is called

turbulent flow.

(c) The average flow velocity near a solid surface is larger for a turbulent flow in

comparison with laminar flow.

(d) A turbulent flow does not separate from the surface as rapidly as laminar flow

because energy of the fluid element close to the surface is larger.

14. The system contains five equations in terms of six unknown flow-field variables r,

p, u, v, w, e.

(a) In aerodynamics it is generally reasonable to assume the gas is a

perfect gas. For the perfect gas, the equation of state is p RT .This provides a

sixth equation, but it also introduces a seventh unknown, namely temperature, T.

thermodynamic relation between state variables. For example, e e(T , p ) . For a

calorically perfect gas, this relation would be e=cvT

15. Gradient of a Scalar Field. The gradient of p, del p at a given point in space is

defined as a vector such that: -

(a) Its magnitude is the maximum rate of change of p per unit length of the

co-ordinate space at the given point.

(b) Its direction is that of the maximum rate of change of p at the given point.

(c) A line drawn in the coordinate space along which del p is tangent at every

point is defined as a gradient line. The gradient line and isoline through

any given point in the coordinate space are perpendicular.

(d) The rate of change of p per unit length is called the directional directive

Physical Meaning

(a) Consider an infinitesimal element of the surface dS moving at the local

velocity V. The change in volume of the contol volume delta V die to just the

movement of dS over the time increment delta t is from figure equal to the

volume of the long thin cylinder with base area dS and altitude (v.delta t).n i.e.,

Angular Velocity, Vorticity and Strain

field. As it translates along a streamline, it may also rotate, and in addition, its shape may

become distorted. The amount of rotation and distortion depends on the velocity field.

(a) Consider a two-dimensional flow in the xy-plane and an infinitesimal fluid

element in this flow.

(b) Assume that at a time t the shape of the fluid element is rectangular as shown

in figure below (towards left). Assume that the fluid element is moving

upward and to the right; its position and shape at time t + delta t are shown at

right.

(c) Note that during time delta t1, sides AB and AC have rotated through the

angular displacements –Δθ1 and Δθ2 respectively.

(d) Angular velocities of lines AB and AC are given by

ξ = − i + − j + − k

∂y ∂z ∂z ∂x ∂x ∂y

(e) By definition, the angular velocity of the fluid element as seen in the xy plane

is the average of angular velocities of lines AB and AC. If ωz denotes the

angular velocity

1 dθ 1 dθ 2 1 dv du

ωz = + = −

2 dt dt 2 dx dy

(f) Now considering the motion of the fluid element in three dimensional space,

ωx and ωy can also be found as

1 dw dv

ωx = −

2 dy dz

2 dz dx

(g) The resulting angular velocity of the fluid element in 3-D space

ω = ωxi + ω y j + ωz k

1 dw dv du dw dv du

⇒ ω = ωz = − i + − j + − k

2 dy dz dz dx dx dy

This equation expresses angular velocity in terms of velocity field derivatives.

18. Vorticity. The angular velocity of a fluid element plays an important role in

theoretical aerodynamics. However the expression 2ω appears frequently, and therefore

we define vorticity which is simply twice the angular velocity i.e.,

Vorticity = ξ = 2ω

(a) From the equation for angular velocity, since u, v, and w denote the x, y,

and z components ur of velocity, respectively we have

ξ = ∇ ×V

(b) In a velocity field, the curl of the velocity is equal to the vorticity which leads

to two important definitions:

ur -

(i) If ξ = ∇ × V is not equal to zero at every point in a flow, the flow

is called rotational. This implies that the fluid elements have a finite

angular velocity. ur

(ii) If ξ = ∇ × V is equal to zero at every point in a flow, the flow is

called irrotational. This implies that the fluid elements have no angular

velocity; rather, their motion through space is a pure translation.

(c) If the flow is two-dimensional (say, in the xy plane) and the flow is

irrotational, then

dv du

⇒ ξ = ξ z = − = 0

dx dy

19. Strain. Considering the fluid element in figure again, let the angle between sides

AB and AC be denoted by κ. As the fluid element moves through the flow field, κ will

change. In figure at time t, κ is initially 90 degrees. At time t+Δt, κ has changed by the

amount Δκ, where

∆k = −∆θ 2 − (−∆θ1 )

(a) By definition, the strain of the fluid element as seen in the xy plane is the

change in κ, where positive strain corresponds to a decreasing κ. Hence the above

equation becomes

Strain = −∆k = ∆θ 2 − ∆θ1

(b) In viscous flows the time rate of strain is an important quantity. It is

denoted and given as follows: -

dv du

⇒ ε xy = +

dx dy

dw dv

⇒ ε yz = +

dy dz

du dw

⇒ ε zx = +

dz dx

20. It may be noted that angular velocity (hence, vorticity) and time rate of strain

depend solely on the velocity derivatives of the flow field. These derivatives can be

displayed in a matrix as follows: -

∂u ∂u ∂u

∂x ∂y ∂z

∂v ∂v ∂v

∂x ∂y ∂z

∂w ∂w ∂w

∂x ∂y ∂z

The diagonal terms denote dilatation since sum of diagonal terms is simply equal to del

dot V. The off-diagonal terms are associated with rotation and strain of a fluid element.

Circulation

21. Circulation is a fundamental tool for the calculation of aerodynamic lift. Consider

a closed curve C in a flow field. Let V and dS be the velocity and directed line segment,

respectively, at u

au

rpoint

uur on C. The circulation denoted by Γ, is defined as

Γ ≡ −Ñ V .dS

C

(a) The circulation is simply the negative of the line integral of velocity

around a closed curve in the flow. It is kinematic property depending only

on the velocity field and the choice of the curve C.

(b) Circulation is also related to vorticity as follows. Assume that the surface

is in a flow field and the velocity at point P is V, where P is any point on

the surfacer uur(including any

uu ur point

uur on curve C). From Stokes’ theorem,

Ñ

C

V .dS ( V ).ndS

integration, then circulation is also zero.

(d) In the limit as

ur C ubecomes

ur infinitesimally small, the above equation yields

d ( V ).ndS

ur d

( V ).n uur

dS

where dS is the infinitesimal area enclosed by the infinitesimal curve C.

Thus as a point P in a flow, the component of vorticity normal to dS is

equal to the negative of the “circulation per unit area”, where the

circulation is taken around the boundary of dS.
