Eddy Formation in the Wake of Projecting Obstacles

Abstract

CONSIDER a stream bounded by and moving parallel to the plane OX, with velocity U, and containing a stationary vortex at A (a, b), or, what is the same thing, an unbounded fluid containing a stationary vortex-pair at A, B (Fig. 1). With the notation w=Φ+iΨ, z=x+iy, Φ= velocity potential, Ψ=stream function, the potential function is given, for this case, by
