The additional dimension of time which is incorporated into the two-dimensional steady problems addressed in the earlier chapter allows for solutions that provide information on the time history of the behaviour of the primary scalar or vector variable. Such solutions do, in most cases, give better representation of the behaviour of engineering systems which are usually under dynamic forces that alter equilibrium states from time to time.
