Fixed Mass of Viscous/Inviscid , Compressible/Incompressible Fluid

  1. Nov 21, 2012 #1
    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
