Chapter 8. Differential Equations of Fluid Flow

8.0 Chapter Objectives

On completion of this chapter, a student should be able to:

• Distinguish between different types of derivatives (partial derivative, total derivative, substantial derivative)

• Distinguish and explain the differences between scalars, vectors, and tensors

• Identify different fluid properties and parameters as scalars, vectors, and tensors

• Derive the equation of continuity for a volume element of fluid

• Simplify the equation of continuity for steady-state systems and systems of constant density

• Identify the equation of continuity in Cartesian, cylindrical, and spherical coordinates

• Derive the equation of motion (momentum balance) for a volume element of fluid

• Simplify ...
