Forms of the Momentum Equation: Equations of Euler and Navier-Stokes

  • Bernard Le Méhauté
Part of the Springer Study Edition book series (SSE)


The momentum equation is obtained by equating the applied forces to the inertia force for a unit volume of the fluid. The physical meaning and the mathematical expressions of these forces have been developed in Chapters 4 and 5.
