Unformatted text preview: thermodynamics which states that the subtraction of heat with work is equal to the change of energy. The momentum conservation is derived similarly to energy and mass. Time-rate changes in momentum are due to changes to spatial changes in fluid inertia, pressure, and fluid stress. The momentum conservation uses Newton’s Law which states that force is equivalent to mass multiplied with acceleration. Davis also explains how turbulence can be modeled using an eddy viscosity approximation with a determined turbulent viscosity coefficient. Turbulence is the random fluctuation in the mean velocity. The main components that make up engineering of fluid dynamics are math, numerics, fluid dynamics, computer science, and visualization....
