Introduction to Pipe Flow
Introduction to Pipe FlowAn Eulerian description of flow is one in which a field concept has been used. Descriptions which make use of velocity fields and flow fields are Eulerian descriptions. Another type of flow description is Lagrangian description. In the Lagrangian description, particles are tagged and the paths of those particles are followed. An Eulerian description of goose migration could involve you or me sitting on the shore of Lake Erie and counting the number of geese that fly over a predetermined length of shoreline in an hour. In a Lagrangian description of the same migration, we might capture and band a single goose with a radio transmitter, and study the path of the goose, including its position and velocity as a function of time.Consider an Eule…
