What is a doublet flow? What are its characteristics?

(6)

In an infinite field of flow, a doublet of strength 32 m 3/s is placed. Estimate the radii of the resulting circles given by the stream function (m2/s) = 2.1, 3.4, 7.5 and 9.1. When a uniform flow of 13.8 m/s is synthesized with this flow, estimate the radius of the resulting circle for the stagnation stream line = 0. (10) Or
