Derivation of the Momentum Transport Equations

  • Daniel Hershey


In the analysis of fluid flow problems, the equation of continuity (material balance) is usually the initial principle invoked. The information gleaned from the equation of continuity is then applied to the equation of motion. From the equation of motion and the fluid properties, the velocity profiles, average velocities, and energy loss can be calculated.
