Abstract: A computer code has been developed to provide visualization of flow fields with regard to many hydraulic engineering design and analysis problems. The finite-difference computer code VORTEX solves the two-dimensional Navier-Stokes equations in stream-function/vorticity form. The code is applicable to flow fields in two dimensions represented in a plan or profile view. Arbitrarily shaped channels and structures are handled through the use of boundary-fitted coordinates. The code accommodates variable density subject to the Boussinesq approximation.
