## Dimensions of Rankine half-body Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Length Y = Strength of Source/(2*Uniform Flow Velocity)*(1-Angle A/pi)
y = q/(2*U)*(1-∠A/pi)
This formula uses 1 Constants, 4 Variables
Constants Used
pi - Archimedes' constant Value Taken As 3.14159265358979323846264338327950288
Variables Used
Length Y - (Measured in Meter) - Length Y is the vertical distance from the origin to the y coordinate.
Strength of Source - (Measured in Square Meter per Second) - The Strength of source, q is defined as the volume flow rate per unit depth of the fluid.
Uniform Flow Velocity - (Measured in Meter per Second) - The Uniform flow velocity is considered in flow past a half body.
Angle A - (Measured in Radian) - The Angle A the space between two intersecting lines or surfaces at or close to the point where they meet.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Strength of Source: 1.5 Square Meter per Second --> 1.5 Square Meter per Second No Conversion Required

## What is Rankine half-body?

In the field of fluid dynamics, a Rankine half body is a feature of fluid flow discovered by Scottish physicist and engineer William Rankine that is formed when a fluid source is added to a fluid undergoing potential flow.

## How is flow around a half body?

To determine the flow around a half body the superposition method will need to be used to combine a uniform flow with a source.

## How to Calculate Dimensions of Rankine half-body?

Dimensions of Rankine half-body calculator uses Length Y = Strength of Source/(2*Uniform Flow Velocity)*(1-Angle A/pi) to calculate the Length Y, The Dimensions of Rankine half-body formula is known by considering the strength of source 'q', uniform flow velocity 'U', and the angle from the relation in shape of resultant flow. Length Y is denoted by y symbol.
