I am trying to follow Landau and Lifshitz, from the Volume 6 (Fluid Mechanics) of the Course of Theoretical Physics, on their derivation of the momentum equation for a newtonian viscous fluid, but I ...
In working through a rigorous derivation of the compressible Navier-Stokes equations, I find that the momentum flux in the X-direction should be driven not only by the normal pressure gradient ...
I'm trying to understand how hydrodynamics arise from a precise, mathematical formulation of thermodynamics, learning mostly from Landau's "Hydrodynamics". So Landau starts from formulating the ...
I couldn't find one but assumed it must exist. Tried to find it on the back of an envelope, but got to an ugly differential equation I can't solve. I'm assuming a square duct of infinite length, ...
Is it possible to evaluate a Reynolds number when viscosity operator is substituted by hyper-viscosity operator at the power H (Laplacien to the power H) in the incompressible Navier-Stokes equations ...
The friction term in Navier-Stokes equation assumes that the viscosity coefficients are the same for the longitudinal and transverse directions. This doesn't seem intuitive, because the former is ...
