Navier Stokes Equation

The primary equation of computational fluid dynamics, relating pressure and external forces acting on a fluid to the response of the fluid flow. Forms of this equation are used in computations for aircraft and ship design, weather prediction, and climate modelling.

The equations named after Claude-Louis Navier and George Gabriel Stokes.
