Abstract:

In two dimensional flows, stagnation points may appear away from solid boundaries. Numerical, analytical and experimental evidence is provided to support the existence of such critical points. The streamline pattern in the neighborhood of critical points is investigated. An intimate relationship between stagnation and separation points is discovered. Author
