# Solution of Navier-Stokes equations

Jump to: navigation, search

For the incompressible flows, the Navier-Stokes equation could be written in the form:

$\nabla \cdot \vec U = 0$
${{\partial \vec U} \over {\partial t}} + \nabla \cdot \left( {\vec U\vec U} \right) - \nabla \cdot\left( {\nu \nabla \vec U} \right) = - \nabla p$

There are two important issues regarding Navier-Stokes equations:

1. Non linearity of momentum equations
2. Pressure-velocity coupling
