MRF theory
Hi All
Some one have some reference about the theory of the MRF? In particularly I'm interesting about how write the N-S equation for a non-inertial reference frame starting from the classical N-S equation for the inertial reference frame. And how convert the equation for the non-inertial reference frame from the relative velocity terms to the absolute velocity terms.

Thank a lot. :)

Talk to Maki. He seems to understand it really well.

Thank you very much, Alton.
But now I'm working with him. And I hope that there is a book where I can find the theory and the hypothesis of the conversion of the non-inertial equation from the relative velocity to the absolute one.
I'm already ask him, but we can't find anything, till now!

Thank you in any case for the quick answer!

Thank you a lot David,
Now all is more clear for me!
There are already some terms that are equal to zero that i should demostrate...
But in generaly all it's ok.
