Part of the Modeling and Simulation in Science, Engineering and Technology book series (MSSET)


This chapter deals with incompressible ideal fluid flows. While choosing the material, the authors aimed at presenting those reults that have now become the classical results and are widely used in the current research work of the aerohydrodynamicists1-9. In particular, the Bernoulli and Lagrange integrals are derived in Section 4.1. They enable one to find the pressure distribution in the fluid from a given velocity field.
