A SOLUTION FOR POTENTIAL FLOW OVER AN ARC FIBER

ABSTRACT
In the paper, the flow field around an arc fiber is studied. Based on the Zhukovsky conversion, the potential and stream functions are derived. The results show that the flow fields depend on geometric properties of the arc fiber and the orientation angle of the incoming flow. The flow field developed in this paper can be used to predict the single-fiber efficiency for the arc fiber.
