 November 10, 2007, 03:21 pressure boundary condition for inviscid flow #1 kharati Guest   Posts: n/a Sponsored Links As we know, if an airfoil oscillates in a fluid, pressure boundary condition on airfoil surface can be calculate by dp/dn=Du/Dt.n. if flow is viscous, acceleration of fluid on airfoil surface is aqual to accelaration of airfoil. how can we calculate acceleration of fluid on airfoil surface if flow is invicsid?

 November 10, 2007, 12:15 Re: pressure boundary condition for inviscid flow #2 Peter Attar Guest   Posts: n/a You asked this already..You are either prescribing the airfoil motion in which case you have a explicit expression for u(t) or you are doing a coupled simulation which you are computing u(t) using a set of structural equations of motion. Either way you have u(t)...

 November 10, 2007, 17:20 Re: pressure boundary condition for inviscid flow #3 Deepak Guest   Posts: n/a Since this is a potential flow, there is a concept called "Apparent mass" to calculate acceleration of the fluid due to a body in motion. This is basically calculating the change in kinetic energy of the fluid. for further assistance, go through Mechanics of Fluids by Currie.

Sounds to me like he's solving the Euler equations. This isn't rocket science..his/her airfoil is oscillating ie he/she has u(t) on the surface so he/she can differentiate analytically or numerically to get the acceleration.
