 November 10, 2007, 02:21 pressure boundary condition for inviscid flow #1 kharati Guest   Posts: n/a 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?

Either way you have u(t)...

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.
