A TREATMENT OF THE EQUILIBRIUM OF AN OIL LAYER ON WATER FLOW

The equilibrium of an oil layer on flowing water is treated as a two-dimensional fluid motion problem. Low and high velocity regions are considered separately. In the former two types of water flow were studied and the result is that there is not so large difference between them as to the calculated length of the oil layer. In the latter a simple approximate solution using Lewis form and an alternative one were obtained. Calculated length of oil layer agreed rather well with experiments in both regions. A short description is given to the critical stream velocity for the leakage of oil as well as necessary corrections for the flow velocity.
