2 Eulerian ViewIn the Lagrangian view each body is described at each point in space.Difficult for a fluid with many particlesIn the Eulerian view the points in space are described.Bulk properties of density and velocity
3 Streamlines A streamline follows the tangents to fluid velocity. Lagrangian viewDashed lines at leftStream tube follows an areaA streakline (blue) shows the current position of a particle starting at a fixed point.A pathline (red) tracks an individual particle.Wikimedia image
4 Fluid Change A change in a property like pressure depends on the view. In the Lagrangian view the total time derivative depends on position and time.The Eulerian view uses just the partial derivative with time.Points in space are fixed
5 Jacobian TensorA general coordinate transformation can be expressed as a tensor.Partial derivatives between two systemsJacobian NN real matrixInverse for nonsingular JacobiansCartesian coordinate transformations have an additional symmetry.Not generally true for other transformations

7 Compressibility A change in pressure on a fluid can cause deformation. Compressibility measures the relationship between volume change and pressure.Usually expressed as a bulk modulus BIdeal liquids are incompressible.Vp
8 Volume Change Consider a fixed amount of fluid in a volume dV. Cubic, Cartesian geometryDimensions dx, dy, dzThe change in dV is related to the divergence.Incompressible fluids - no velocity divergence
