Abstract

Current numerical calculation of acoustic streaming can involve major computing time and resources. To develop a quicker model, the vorticity transport equation (VTE) is used. In this paper Rayleigh streaming in a cylindrical tube is simulated using the VTE. The goal of using the VTE is to obtain a relatively fast solution with minimal computational resources, which in this case is a single PC. A clustered grid is utilized to capture the boundary layer effect on the acoustic streaming. The governing equations used are the VTE, Poisson's equation, and an equation that relates the stream function with the velocity. It is demonstrated that the VTE method to calculate Rayleigh streaming works well.
