Abstract

The horseshoe vortex is given in Oseen flow as a constant spanwise distribution of lift Oseenlets. From this, the vortex line is represented in steady, incompressible Oseen flow. The velocity near to the vortex line is determined, as well as near to and far from the far field wake. The velocity field in the transverse plane near to the vortex line is shown to approximate to the two-dimensional Lamb–Oseen vortex, and the velocity field in the streamwise direction is generated by the bound vortex line of the horseshoe vortex giving a streamwise decay much faster than that of the Batchelor vortex. The far field wake description is shown to be consistent with laminar wake theory.
