This is the Lagrangian description of fluid motion. Fluent Inc. 12/05/10 B4 Fluids Review TRN-1998-004 Eulerian Description of Fluid Motion Another view of fluid motion is the Eulerian description. In the Eulerian description of fluid motion, we consider how flow properties change at a given point in space and time (x,y,z,t), rather than following individual fluid particles. Fluent Inc. 12/05/10 B5 Fluids Review TRN-1998-004 Eulerian vs Lagrangian The fundamental laws of fluid motion are easily derived in the Lagrangian framework. The solution of these equations for a specific flow is more easily carried out using the Eulerian framework, since it permits them to be expressed as a system of differential equations . We will therefore look at the fundamental equations of fluid mechanics as follows: Formulate the governing equations equations using the Lagrangian system Convert these equations from the Lagrangian system to the Eulerian system (using Reynolds Transport Theorem) - these equations can then be solved for specific flow fields of interest.
