Navier–Stokes equations describe the conservation of fluid momentum
For example, the equations for an incompressible Newtonian fluid can be expressed as follows.

v Flow velocity
t: Time
ρ: Density
p: Pressure
μ: Viscosity coefficient


Starting from left the terms are called time, convective (or advection), pressure, and viscosity (or diffusion) terms, respectively.

Navier-Stokes is named after the French physicist Claude Louis Marie Henri Navier and the Irish physicist George Gabriel Stokes.
