Abstract:

For design purposes it would be desirable to have a model which would predict the dynamic andor steady state response of a beam-deflection fluid amplifier. One possible computer model consists of using a finite difference scheme to solve the governing fluid flow equations, which are taken to be the Navier-Stokes equation in terms of vorticity and the continuity equation in terms of stream function. Present work on such a model uses an alternating direction implicit method ADI on the vorticity equation and a successive overrelaxation method SOR on the stream function equation.
