Generalized singular points with applications to flow problems

  • B. R. Seth


Generalized singular points are used to discuss irrotational and viscous flows produced in an infinite liquid by a moving solid. It is found that the irrotational motion of translation is the same as that due to a generalized doublet and that of rotation the same as that due to a “rotation singular point”. The corresponding viscous problems are solved by superposing on the irrotational motion a solution due to a concentrated force or a couple.
