The pressure field around a bubble

Posted in math on Monday, June 30 2014

Previously, I figured out the velocity field for creeping flow around a bubble, and made a nice graphic to go with. This time I solved through for the pressure field, and this is what it looks like (along the plane y=0, gauge pressure, all other constants 1) pressure in flow passed a bubble

The derivation is straight forward, given the velocity field already. pressure derivation
