Computation of kinetic energy of the flow
 
Hi foamers,
I am really puzzled about how tocompute the overall kinetic energy of the flow, i mean I(1/2*U^2)dV, where I is an integral over the given volume.
I understand that I have to sum over all subvolumes but I do not even know how to start . Please help me
