    * Vorticity and Rotation in Fluid Mechanics

    Vorticity and Rotation Before vorticity is discussed, it is important to establish in a case under consideration whether the flow exist or not. For flow to exist, equation of continuity must be satisfied. For an in-compressible fluid ∂u/∂x = 0 for 1- dimensional flow ∂u/∂x + ∂v/∂y = 0 for a 2- dimensional flow ∂u/∂x […]

    * FLUID KINEMATICS—-EQUATIONS OF FLUID MOTION- Continuity equation

    FLUID KINEMATICS—-EQUATIONS OF FLUID MOTION–Continuity equation Equations of fluid motion use two approaches. (i) Integral approach–Not being dealt here. (ii) Differential approach Differential approach uses Control Volume method A control volume is a finite region having OPEN boundaries through which there is mass transfer, momentum transfer and energy transfer. Control volume method considers the followings […]
