Transit time for a fluid particle in potential flow

  1. Oct 12, 2007 #1

    consider classical potential flow without circulation around a
    cylinder. Let us follow a fluid particle adjacent to the upper surface
    of the cylinder (e.g. on the dividing streamline), starting just a
    very tiny bit upstream of the upstream stagnation point. It will go to
    the downstream stagnation point, following the surface of the
    cylinder. How much time does it take for the particle to get to the
    downstream stagnation point? I found an answer, but it's so strange
    that I'd like to hear your opinion too. Thanks,
