Renyolds Transport Theorem from Navier-Stokes?

  1. Mar 23, 2008 #1
    I've been trying to figure out how I can start with the Navier-Stokes equation and end up at the Reynolds Transport Theorem. Could anyone provide a link to a derivation of this? or some advice of some sort?

    The Reynolds transport theorem is a general statement of a conservation law. Basically, it means that the rate of change of any quantity within a volume is given by the flux in and out of the volume as well as the change of the volume (which occurs under deformation).
