How can one go from the 3D compressible Navier-Stokes equations to the simpler Euler equations, Bernoulli's equation and other fluid dynamic equations?

This is a pretty good quick reference: engineeringtoolbox.com/fluid-mechanics-equations-d_204.html If you want a detailed treatment, Anderson's 'Fundamentals of Aerodynamics' treats the subject quite well, going into detail about the accuracy of each model under different Mach and Reynold's numbers. –  MattG Aug 13 '13 at 16:14
Any fluid dynamics textbook (Acheson, Kundu & Cohen, etc) should cover this information. –  Kyle Kanos Aug 13 '13 at 16:15
Even CFD by Anderson is a good reference. –  aditya kp Aug 17 '13 at 2:13
