The behavior of incompressible fluids is modeled with the system of the incompressible Navier–Stokes equations. These equations describe the conservation of linear momentum and the conservation of mass. In the special case of a steady-state situation and large viscosity of the fluid, the Navier–Stokes equations can be approximated by the Stokes equations. Incompressible flow problems are not only of interest by themselves, but they are part of many complex models for describing phenomena in nature or processes in engineering and industry.
