What type of flow is this?

  1. May 10, 2007 #1
    Hi,

    I'm unsure as to what type of flow this is:

    Stream Function: psi = -ln(r) + theta
    Potential Function: phi = theta + ln(r)

    For some reason, I don't think I'm plotting the flow correctly. Suggestions/advice? Thanks!

    Have you tried calculating the velocity profiles from the stream and potential functions? Can you show your work?
