File Information

*This* is the 3rd MATLAB App in the Virtual Thermal/Fluid Lab series.
This MATLAB App allows you to:
1. Visualize elementary potential flows including:
        a. Uniform flow
        b. Source
        c. Sink
        d. Vortex
        e. Doublet
2. Combine different potential flows to create:
        a. Flow past a cylinder
        b. Spiral vortex
        c. Many more
3. Learn computation of velocity potential and stream function
4. Look at the GUI source code and see how it is created
Check out the webinar on virtual fluid mechanics and heat transfer labs with MATLAB:

Required Products MATLAB
MATLAB release MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b)
MATLAB Search Path
Other requirements MATLAB 8.0 (R2012b) and later required to install it as an App. However, earlier versions can be used to run it as a GUI.
