## Review of basic fluid mechanics and the governing

(NavierNavier-Stokes) equations
Fluids are substances whose molecular structure
offers no resistance to external shear forces: even the
smallest force causes deformation of a fluid particle.
Although a significant distinction exists between
liquids and gases, both types of fluids obey the same
laws of motion. In most cases of interest, a fluid can
be regarded as continuum, i.e. a continuous
substance.

## Path Lines, Streamlines, and Stream Functions

 A path line is a line along which a fluid particle
actually travels. Since, it is the time history of the position
of a fluid particle, it is best described using the
Lagrangian description.
 Since the particle incrementally moves in the direction
of the velocity vector, the equation of a path line is given
by:

##  A streamline is defined as a line drawn in the flow at a

given instant of time such that the fluid velocity vector at
any point on the streamline is tangent to the line at that
point. The requirement of tangency means that the
streamlines are given by the equation
 A stream surface (or stream sheet) is a collection of
adjacent streamlines, providing a surface through which
there is no flow. A stream tube is a tube made up of
 For steady flows (time-independent), path lines and
streamlines coincide.

Laws

## laws for mass, momentum, and energy.

CONSERVATION OF MASS
Consider a volume fixed in space (Figure 1). The
rate of increase of mass inside it is the volume
integral

surface integral

## because u dA is the outward flux through an area

element dA.
The law of conservation of mass states that the rate of
increase of mass within a fixed volume must equal the
rate of inflow through the boundaries. Therefore,
(1)

## Eq. (1) is the integral form of the law for a

volume fixed in space. The differential form can
be obtained by transforming the surface integral
on the right-hand side of Eq. (1) to a volume
integral by means of the divergence theorem,
which gives

## The aforementioned relation holds for any volume,

which can be possible only if the integrand vanishes at
every point. (If the integrand did not vanish at every

## point, then we could choose a small volume around

that point and obtain a nonzero integral.)
This requires
(2)

## which is called the continuity equation and expresses

the differential form of the principle of conservation of
mass.

## The equation can be written in several other forms.

Rewriting the divergence term in Eq. (2) as

(3)

## The derivative D/Dt is the rate of change of density

following a fluid particle; it can be nonzero because of
changes in pressure, temperature, or composition (such
as salinity in sea water).

## The continuity equation (3) can be rewritten for

incompressible fluid as
(4)

## Eq. (4) is valid irrespective of whether or not the flow is

CONSERVATION OF MOMENTUM
Consider the motion of the infinitesimal fluid
element shown in Fig. 2. Newtons law requires that
the net force on the element must equal mass times
the acceleration of the element. The sum of the
surface forces in the x1 direction equals

## Fig. 2 Surface stresses on an element moving with the flow.

which simplifies to

## where dV is the volume of the element.

Generalizing, the i-component of the surface force
per unit volume of the element is

## Let g be the body force per unit mass, so that g is

the body force per unit volume. Then Newtons law
gives
(5)

## This is the equation of motion relating acceleration

to the net force at a point and holds for any
continuum, solid or fluid, no matter how the stress
tensor ij is related to the deformation field. Eq. (5)
is sometimes called Cauchys equation of motion.

NAVIERSTOKES EQUATIONS

The constitute equation for a Newtonian fluid is
given as
(6)

## The equation of motion for a Newtonian fluid is

obtained by substituting the constitutive Eq. (6) into
Cauchys Eq. (5) to obtain
(7)

## Where, we have noted that (p/xj )ij = p/xi . Eq. (7)

is a general form of the Navier
NavierStokes equation.

## Viscosity in Eq. (7) can be a function of the

thermodynamic state, and indeed for most fluids displays
a rather strong dependence on temperature, decreasing
with T for liquids and increasing with T for gases. However,
if the temperature differences are small within the fluid,
then can be taken outside the derivative in equation (7),
which then reduces to

(8)
Where 2ui is the Laplacian of ui

## For incompressible fluids u

u = 0, and using vector
notation, the NavierStokes equation reduces to

## If viscous effects are negligible, which is generally found to

be true far from boundaries of the flow field, we obtain the

Euler equation
