Navier–Stokes Equations
Navier–Stokes EquationsThe Navier–Stokes equations are named in honor of the French mathematician L. M. H. Navier (1758–1836) and the Irish born, Cambridge physicist and mathematician, Sir G. G. Stokes (1819–1903), who were responsible for their formulation. These equations are nonlinear, second-order, partial differential equations and they are considered to be the governing differential equations of motion for incompressible, Newtonian fluids.The Navier–Stokes equations can now be written rather efficiently in the following form:
