Question

A steady, incompressible, two-dimensional CFD calculation of flow through an asymmetric two-dimensional branching duct reveals the streamline pattern sketched in Fig, where the values of ? are in units of m2/s, and W is the width of the duct into the page. The values of stream function ? on the duct walls are shown. What percentage of the flow goes through the upper branch of the duct?

w= 4.35
w=3.10
w = 2.03
