Recast Governing Equations Reading: Anderson 2.9, 2.10 Substantial Derivative Sensed rates of change The rate of change reported by a flow sensor clearly depends on the motion of the sensor. For example, the pressure reported by a staticpressure sensor mounted on an airplane in level flight shows zero rate of change. But a ground pressure sensor reports a nonzero rate as the airplane rapidly flies by a few meters overhead. The figure illustrates the situation. p (t) 1 p (t) 2 o t = t wing location at p t o t p (t) 1 p (t) 2 Note that although the two sensors measure the same instantaneous static pressure at the same point (at time t = t o ), the measured time rates are different. p 1 ( t o ) = p 2 ( t o ) but dp 1 dt ( t o ) negationslash = dp 2 dt ( t o ) Drifting sensor We will now imagine a sensor drifting with a fluid element . In effect, the sensor follows the elements pathline coordinates x s ( t ), y s ( t ), z s ( t ), whose time rates of change are just the local flow velocity components dx s dt = u ( x s , y s , z s , t ) , dy s dt = v ( x s , y s , z s , t ) , dz s dt = w ( x s , y s , z s , t ) t V p (t) s s p pathline pressure field sensor drifting with local velocity s Dp dp Dt dt Consider a flow field quantity to be observed by the drifting sensor, such as the static pressure...
