Claude-Louis Navier print that pageTimeline of Claude-Louis Navier


The Navier -Stokes equations are named after him and George Gabriel Stokes . [ edit ] Biography After the death of his father in 1793, Navier 's mother left his education in the hands of his uncle Emiland Gauthey , an engineer with the Corps of Bridges and Roads (Corps des Ponts et Chaussée

Navier–Stokes equations print that page


In physics , the Navier–Stokes equations , named after Claude -Louis Navier and George Gabriel Stokes , describe the motion of fluid substances. These equations arise from applying Newton's second law to fluid motion , together with the assumption that the fluid stress is the sum of

In 1843 he published the correct derivation of the Navier -Stokes equations for a viscous flow [ 2 ] and was the first to "properly identify the coefficient of viscosity and its role as a multiplying factor for the velocity gradients in the flow". Although he published before Stokes the | 2010/10/2 5:32:40

Poiseuille and Gotthilf Heinrich Ludwig Hagen . Further mathematical justification was provided by Claude -Louis Navier and George Gabriel Stokes in the Navier–Stokes equations , and boundary layers were investigated ( Ludwig Prandtl , Theodore von Kármán ), while various scientists

Navier–Stokes existence and smoothness print that page

The Navier–Stokes equations are one of the pillars of fluid mechanics . These equations describe the motion of a fluid (that is, a liquid or a gas) in space. Solutions to the Navier–Stokes equations are used in many practical applications. However, theoretical understanding of the solutions | 2011/4/6 2:10:50

Derivation of the Navier–Stokes equations print that page

The intent of this article is to highlight the important points of the derivation of the Navier–Stokes equations as well as the application and formulation for different families of fluids.

Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations print that page

The Reynolds-averaged Navier–Stokes equations (or RANS equations) are time-averaged [ 1 ] equations of motion for fluid flow . The idea behind the equations is Reynolds decomposition , whereby an instantaneous quantity is decomposed into its time-averaged and fluctuating quantities, an | 2011/4/13 15:15:55

Linear elasticity print that page

Equations governing a linear elastic boundary value problem are based on three tensor partial differential equations for the balance of linear momentum and six infinitesimal strain - displacement relations. The systems of differential equations is completed by a set of linear algebraic | 2011/5/4 19:06:21
