Learning outcomes

After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • derive the pathlines and the streamlines in Cartesian and polar form from a velocity field

  • derive the stream function from a velocity field

  • model different flows from a combination of uniform flows, sources, sinks and doublets

  • use the continuity equation to determine whether an inviscid flow is incompressible

  • understand how Euler’s equation is derived, what it represents, and use it to find the pressure distribution from a velocity.
