Chapter 2 Governing Equations
2.1 Introduction
All of CFD is based on the fundamental governing equations of fluid
dynamics the continuity, momentum and energy equations. These are
corresponding to the fundamental physical principles as follows:
- Mass is conserved;
- Newtons second law, F = ma;
- Energy is conserved.
The purpose of this chapter is to derive these equation.
Why?
- You have no chance to be a CFD expert if you dont know these equations
- Different forms of governing equations.

2.2 Models of the Flow

To derive the basic equations of fluid motion, the following
philosophy is always followed:
1. Choose the appropriate fundamental physical principle from the
law of physics, such as
- Mass is conserved;
- Newtons second law, F = ma;
- Energy is conserved;
2. Apply the fundamental physical principle to a suitable model of the
flow;
3. Derive the mathematical equations, which embody these physical
principles

2.2.3 Some Comments
- In general aerodynamic theory, whether we deal with
conservation or non-conservation forms of equations is irrelevant;
- One form can be obtained from the other, only through simple
mathematical manipulations;
- For CFD, it is important to choose the form of the equations. The
nomenclature distinguishing these two forms of equations is firstly
introduced by CFD researchers.

Four forms of the same equation.
2.5.6 Integral versus Differential Forms of Equations
There is a subtle difference between the integral and differential
forms of the governing equations:
- The integral form of the governing equations allows for the
presence of discontinuities inside the fixed control volume.
- The differential form of the governing equations assumes the flow
properties are differentiable.

In the late of 17
th
century, Newton stated that shear stress in a fluid is
proportional to the time rate of strain, i.e. velocity gradients. Such fluids
are called Newtonian fluid. For such fluid, Stokes in 1845 obtained

2.8 Summary of the Governing Equations for Fluid
Dynamics: with Comments
2.8.1 Navier-Stokes euqations
2.8.2 Euler Equations
2.8.3 Comments on the Governing Equations
1The y are coupled system of nonlinear partial differential equations,
and hence are very difficult to solve analytically. To date, there is no
close-form solution to these equations.
2For the momentum and energy equations, the differences between the
nonconservation and conservation forms of the equations is just the
left-hand side.
3Note that the conservation forms of equations contain terms on the
left-hand side which include the divergence of some quantity. For this
reason, the conservation form of governing equations is sometimes
called divergence form.

4The normal and shear stress terms in these equations are functions of
the velocity gradients.
5Examine the equations, we have 5 equations in terms if 7 unknown
flow-field variables, . In aerodynamic, it is
generally reasonable to assume that the gas is a perfect gas (which
assume that intermolecular forces are negligible). For a perfect gas,
the equations of state.

where R is the specific gas constant. A seventh equation to close the
entire system must be a thermodynamic relation between state
variables. For example

6 Navier-Stokes equations are referred to as the whole system of
equations in modern CFD, not only to the momentum equations for a
viscous flow.
7 Similarly, Euler equations are referred to as the whole system of
equations in modern CFD, not only to the momentum equations for a
inviscid flow.

2.9 Physical Boundary Conditions
Wall boundary
For viscous flow: non-slip condition, or zero relative velocity between the
wall surface and the gas immediately at the wall
u=v=w=0
Boundary condition on the gas temperature

Inviscid flow: flow velocity adjacent to the wall must be tangent to the way

Other boundary conditions
- Outer flow: far-field boundary condition
- Internal flow: inflow and outflow
Numerical Boundary conditions
If the problem involves an aerodynamic body immersed in a known
free stream, then the boundary conditions applied to a distance
infinitely far upstream, above, blow and downstream of the body is
simply the given free condition.
Numerically, due to the limitation of computational resource, the
outer boundary of the computational domain has to be limited to a
finite distance away from the wall boundary. In this case, the one-
dimensional Riemann boundary condition is often applied.
