3 Arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian Description (ALE) This description finds application in modern computational tools developed for analysis in engineering and sciences. It consists of recording data at points which move arbitrarily. For example, in a numerical computation the fluid properties are calculated at the mesh nodes. If the mesh moves, then we can use an Arbitrary Langrangian-Eulerian formulation to calculate the fluid variables at the mesh nodes. 2 The Substantial or Material Derivative In classical mechanics, physical laws are formulated for a piece of matter, that is, for a particle or a set of particles.

4 Fluid Statics Fluid statics is the part of fluid mechanics that deals with fluids when there is no relative motion between the fluid particles. Typically this includes two situations: when the fluid is at rest and when it moves like a rigid solid. This chapter will show how to calculate the pressure field in fluids at rest and how to calculate the interaction forces between the fluid and submerged surfaces. 1 The Fundamental Equation of Fluid Statics Let us take an arbitrary fluid volume V , with surface S.

4 Streamlines, Trajectories and Streaklines 21 v v v Fig. 6. The streamline is tangent to the velocity vector at every point. 4 (Trajectory). The trajectory or path is the track followed by a fluid particle. Fig. 7. Trajectory. The fluid particle follows the plotted line. 5 (Streakline). The streakline is the geometric place occupied by fluid particles that have passed by the same point at previous times. Fig. 8. The plume of a chimney is a streakline. Streamlines indicate the velocity direction. They can be visualized by implanting little flags inside the fluid and observing their orientation.
