    Stream Function, Velocity Potential and Cauchy Riemann Equations—-2  VELOCITY POTENTIAL Velocity Potential φ is a Scalar Function of space and time co-ordinates such that its NEGATIVE derivative with respect to any direction give the fluid velocity in that direction. Thus φ is a 3-D function. φ= f(x, y, z, t) For a steady flow φ= (x, […]

    Stream Function, Velocity Potential and Cauchy Reimann Equations

     Stream Function, Velocity Potential and Cauchy Riemann Equations Stream function ‘ψ’ and velocity potential ‘φ’ are arbitrary fictitious parameters. These do not exist in actual practice. Fluid flow is a complex phenomenon. Thus these have been developed to understand complexity of fluid dynamics in a easy manner. STREAM FUNCTION It is the volume flux in the […]
