We will see later in what circumstances this pressure is an average of three normal stresses. Generally the structure of the stress tensor should be where the part “at rest” is isotropic while the remaining is an anisotropic part. For the so-called Stokes (“without memory”) fluids, with restriction for the fluid flows of “rigid type” (without deformations), while for the fluids “with memory”, depends upon the time derivatives of [D] too. The postulate 2) implies, through the medium isotropy, that the function [T] is also an isotropic function in the sense of the constitutive laws Introduction to Mechanics of Continua 39 principles.

Obviously, due to the high complexity of the proposed aim, we will select only the most important results within the context of numerical and computational methods. 1. Vorticity and Circulation for Inviscid Fluids. 1 Correspondingly, in the above conditions, the strength of a vortex tube is a constant too (Helmholtz). In the case of the ideal incompressible or barotropic compressible fluid flows, the vorticity (rotation) equation (obtained by taking the curl of each term of the Euler equation) could be written as On the other hand, if we consider the flux of rotation (vorticity) across a fluid surface that is as and the formula [153], holds, we can state the following theorem: 1 The Thompson theorem requires, basically, the existence of a uniform potential of accelerations.

The entropy is constant along any trajectory and the respective fluid flow is called isentropic (if the value of the entropy constant is the same in the whole fluid, the flow will be called homentropic). , using the whole system of six equations with six unknowns Generally, the fluid characterized by the equations of state under the form with satisfying the requirements of the implicit functions theorem, are called barotropic. For these fluids, the determination of the flow comes always to a system of five equations with five unknowns, with given initial and boundary conditions.
