Problem 73P

Consider a steady, two-dimensional, incompressible flow field in the xy-plane. The linear strain rate in the x-direction is 2.5 s -1. Calculate the linear strain rate in the y-direction.

Solution

Step 1 of 3

The linear strain rate in x- direction is given to be for a two dimensional, steady and incompressible field in xy plane. Here we need to calculate linear strain rate in y-direction using the volumetric strain rate equation.
