Hello there ,

could you please explain to me what would happen to an inviscid/viscous incompressible flow (energy,momentum and entropy wise)falling from a height ? ( i.e a dam )

To be honest, I am not really sure what you are asking, especially since you say "invsicid/viscous", which are opposite terms.

I meant how would each of the mentioned values ( entropy , momentum , energy ) would change for both a viscous and an inviscid fluid for each phase : a ) at the top of the dam , b) while falling c) when it drops d) after the drop
