NavierStokes Equations
The NavierStokes equations are the fundamental partial differentials equations that describe the flow of incompressible
fluids. Using the rate of stress and rate o

Typical Vortex Solutions
In Chap. 4 we have studied attached and free vortex layers, and seen that
the rolling up of a free vortex layer forms a vortex which has the highest
possible vorticity concentration as mentioned in the beginning of Sect. 1.3

Examples of Laminar Flows
In laminar flows the fluid moves in "layers" or laminae, in contrast to the apparently chaotic motion of
turbulent flow. Laminar flows in many different geometries have been investigated with the help of

Creeping flow
Viscosity may be so large that a fluid only flows with difficulty. Heavy oils, honey,
even tight crowds of people, show insignificant effects of inertia, and are instead
dominated by internal friction. Such fluids do not make spinning vor
The Material Derivative
The equations above apply to a fluid element which is a small
blob of fluid that contains the same material at all times as
the fluid moves.

Euler and Lagrange descriptions
Euler approach The fluid properties p, , v are
written as functions of space and times. The
flow is determined by the analyzing the behavior
of the functions.
Lagrange approach Pieces of the fluid are

1.1 Lagrangian vs. Eulerian points of View
In ﬂuid mechanics we describe the motion of liquids and gases (such as water and air) using
the approach of continuum mechanics, wherein the ﬂuid is characteriz
