Transport Theorems

Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 86)

Abstract

The application of classical mechanics principles to fluid dynamics is not a straightforward task. Since fluids are extremely deformable media, Lagrangian formulations find a hard time tracking all the fluid particles. Therefore, it is very convenient to rewrite the equations of mechanics and thermodynamics in a more amenable way for the solution of transport problems. This can be achieved with the help of the transport theorems, presented in this chapter.
