Title:Re-examination of boundary layer attenuation and acoustic streaming accompanying plane wave propagation in circular tube
Author(s):Qi, Quan; Johnson, Robert E.; Harris, John G.
Subject(s):Boundary Layer Attenuation
Acoustic Streaming
Plane Wave Propagation
Circular Tube
Abstract:The viscous and thermal boundary layer attenuation, and the acoustic streaming that accompanies the lowest acoustic mode propagating down a long, wide circular tube are calculated asymptotically. By fully including the effects of compressibility and heat conduction corrections are made to earlier work. The leading order acoustic wave solution is analyzed using matched asymptotic expansions. The matching gives the dispersion relation and from this model propagation equations are proposed. These results agree with earlier ones derived quite differently. The acoustic streaming driven by the Reynolds stress in the boundary layer is next analyzed. The streaming velocities are calculated and the corrections, caused by including the effects of compressibility and heat conduction, to earlier expressions are expressed in terms of the Prandtl number and the specific heat ratio. Further, a second order time-independent temperature field caused by the passage of the wave is found.
