Is that possible to derive the Navier-Stokes equations with Lagrangian and Hamiltonian methods? If yes, how? and if it is not possible, why?

Did you try Googling this question first? It seems to turn up several hits.

Hello, thank you for your reply. Yes, I tried to Google it, but I didn't find what I wanted. I expected an approach like, for example, estabilish the generalized coordinates, calculate the kinetic energy and so on. Finally, that is why I wrote here, I tought that maybe I was thinking in a wrong way.

the Navier-Stokes is a system with energy dissipation. The variational principle for the Euler equations is contained in M. Taylor's PDE vol 3

It seems to some that those equations could be approached with such methods:
