Fluid Kinematics
Fluid KinematicsLet's begin with the mathematical description of the motion of the fluid moving in a flow field. It will be convenient to express the velocity in terms of three Cartesian components so that velocity becomes a function of x, y, and z spatial coordinates, as well as a function of time. We also use u, v, and w to stand for the velocity components in the x, y, and z directions, respectively. Written in a concise form:
