VISCOUS EDDIES

1. Introduction

If viscous fluid flows near a corner between two fixed rigid walls intersecting at an acute angle, then sufficientlynear the stagnation point at the intersection 0, the flow will be slow enough to be described by the Stokes (slow motion) equations. In terms of the stream function Y(r,8) (in plane polar coordinate) this is simply the biharmonic equation

(1 * 1)

V~F=O,

and the boundary conditions on the two planes, 8 = &:cc say, are that the two eumponents of velocity must vanish:

It might be anticipated that, sufficiently near the corner, the flow pattern may be independent of the stirring forces far from the corner that agitate the fluid. Rayleigh (1920) attempted to describe this flow by assuming that the stream function near the corner was of the form (1.3) but he assumed that I must be an integer, and he was consequently unable to find a functionf(8) satisfying the four boundary conditions (1.2). DEAN MONTAGNON and (1948) reconsidered the problem, and showed that if the angle 2a is less than a certain critical angle (approximately 146) then 1 is necessarily, cpmplex, but they did not explore the consequences of this rather surprising conclusion. The and MONTAGNON incomplete to the extent that was problem as posed by DEAN the geometry of the stirring forces far from the corner was not specified. Part of my aim in this talk is to find a complete solution corresponding to rather special outer boundary conditions and to verify that (1.3) is the correct asymptotic form for Y near the corner: and part is to show that the complex exponent A implies the existence of a geometrical progression of eddies as the corner is approached. I shall suppose that the fluid motion is generated by the insertion of two moving sleeves inserted in the walls 8 = &LX in the region a < r Q b (Fig. 1). The sleeves

move with velocity ktv as indicated, and it is assumed that the Reynoldsmumber Re is small: Re = Vb/v 4 1 (1-4) where Y is the kinematic viscosity of the fluid. One would expect such an arrangement to generate an eddy as indicated in the space between the planes. The question posed here is: what is the nature of the flow for r 4 0 and for

r + c ? The boundary conditions (1.2) now need to be modified in the folo lowing manner :

8=fa.

For both small and large r the velocity tends to zero and this imposes further conditions on Y. We shall assume such conditions as we require and verify that they are satisfied by the (unique) solution when we have found it.

2. Mathematical Solution of the Problem

A method suitable for solving the problem defined above has been suggested by TRANTJIR (1948) in the context of plane-strain wedge problems in elasticity. The method is to use the Mellin transform F(p, 0) defined by

in which p may be complex, its real part being such that the integral exists. Assuming P i s such that

and we may take c = 0. It will become apparent that this is certainly justified when the angle 2u is less than 4 2 . Otherwise more care is needed in the choice of c. From (2.8) and (2.6) we now have

The integrand has a removable singularity at p = - 1 (provided a ZO),and simple poles at the other zeros of W(p). By writing p+l = E+iq and separating the real and imaginary parts of (2.7), it is not difficult to show that there is one and only one such zero, pn say, in each strip (2.10) (2n--l)n<t<

z,

n = 1 , 2 , 3 ,...,

and that if p n is a zero having Re(p,) > 0, then p-,, - p n - 2 is a zero having Re(p-,) < 0. The integral may now be evaluated by the theorem of residues by completing the contour at a large ,distance in an appropriate way. Choice of the contour is governed by the factor b (b/r)P-a(a/r)p in the integrand (substituting for U(p)). If r < a(< b), the contour may be closed by the remaining three sides of a large' square in the half plane Re(p) < 0. If r > b(> a), the square in the half plane Re(p) > 0 must be chosen. If U < r < by the part of the integral involving (b/r)P must be evaluated round the first square and the part involving (cz/r)P round the second. Applying the theorem of residues, and noting that for n < 0, Re(p,) < 0, while for n > 0, Re(p,) > 0, the solution Y(r, 6) follows in the form

where (2.12)

It is now possible to check that the various assumptions made at the outset about Y, for large and small r, were justified. For, from (2.1 l), with Re(pn) = tn-1 say,

From Table 1, it is evident that, when 2u is acute, t1> 2, and it is now easy to check that the integrations by parts (2.2) are valid when Re(p) is in a small neighbJ

(2.8). The solution (2.11) has therefore been obtained by a valid process, and, by the well-known uniqueness theorem for viscous flows inside solid boundaries, it is the solution that we require.

The most interesting feature of the asymptotic behaviour (3.1) is that it describes a geometric progression of eddies near the corner. The simplest way to see this is to calculate the transverse velocity component on the line 0 = 0:

Clearly the expression (3.3) changes sign infinitely often as the point r = 0 is approached. In fact Vg,o = 0 for values of r satisfying

i.e.

(3.4)

r = (ae-e/%)e-W?i = rs

say.

It is clear that r, is the distance of the centre of the sth eddy (counted from any chosen eddy) from the corner. Note that the dimensions of successive eddies fall off in geometric progression with common ratio

(3 * 5)

a quantity which depends only on the angle 2a. The velocity Ve=o has a local maximum at the points

v = AV

(rs:

= vStll2,

say.

This may be taken as a measure of the intensity of consecutive eddies. The intensities therefore fall offin geometric progression with common ratio (3.6) a quantity which also depends only on the angle 2a. The parameters el and col seem to provide the best description of this sequence of eddies; their logarithms are given in Table 1. It will be observed that el is of order unity so that adjacent eddies are of comparable size for values of 2a up to but t about No, for larger corner angles, el increases to about 10 at 2 ~= 90. The relative intensity of adjacent eddies is always large, its minimum value, w,,, = 365, being attained in the limiting case 2a = 0. For a right angle, o1= 2000 and the eddy intensity falls offvery rapidly as the corner is approached. The relative eddy sizes and intensities are indicated in Fig. 2 for a corner angle 2a = 30. The relative

factor

dimensions of the eddies are approximately correct, but their shapes have not been calculated exactly and are only indicated schematically. All the eddies (for a given corner angle) are geometrically and dynamically similar, but with successive changes of length and velocity scales represented by the factors el and col. The asymptotic behaviour for large r, from (2.11)3 is clearly very similar; a sequence of eddies develop, whose intensities fall off in geometric progression with increasing distance from the corner. In the region a < r < by the series in (2.11)2 converge rather slowly, but it seems unlikely that the solution in this region can represent anything other than a single eddy following the movement of the boundaries as suggested in Fig. 1. It seems indisputable that the eddying behaviour demonstrated here is in fact quite general and independent of the precise method of agitation of the fluid. Further aspects of the problem have been explored in another paper to be published 1964). shortly (MOFFATT,
