Over a large number of decades, after Leonhard Euler (1707–1783) had formulated the system of equations for the description of convective processes in three-dimensional flow fields and further after its extension to flows with friction by Navier (1822), Poisson (1831), Saint-Vernant (1843) and Stokes (1845), a solution of such kind of systems of equations seemed to be impossible.
