What is the lagrangian frame of reference? A fluids property as it changes in time
What is the Eulerisn frame of reference? A fluids property at a particular position in space.
What is a pathline? The history of the position of a single particle.
What frame of reference is a pathline? Lagrangian
What is a streakline? A line connecting all the particles that have passed through the same point at an instant in time.
What is a streamline? A line which is tangent to all velocity vectors?
What frame of reference is a streamline? Eulerian
How do you derive the equation of a streamline in 2D? Solve the following equation ∫v dx = ∫u dy
How do you derive the equation of a streamline in 3D? Solve the following equation dy/v = dx/u = dz/w
What are the characteristics of a steady flow? Is not time dependent and streamlines, streamlines and pathlines are the same.
What is acceleration? Rate of change of velocity a = dV/dt where V = f(x,y,z,t)
What is convective acceleration? Acceleration due to a fluid particles change in position in space. = u dV/dx + v dV/dy + w dV/dz Eulerian
What is local/temporal acceleration? Acceleration due to time. = dV/dt Lagrangian
What is a stagnation point? A point where a fluids velocity is equal to 0.
When is flow parallel to an axis? When the velocity is 0 in other directions.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
