Solution of the Navier-Stokes Equations

In Chaps. 3, 4 and 6 we dealt with the discretization of a generic conservation equation. The discretization principles described there apply to the momentum and continuity equations (which we shall collectively call the Navier-Stokes equations) . In this chapter, we shall describe how the terms in the momentum equations which differ from those in the generic conservation equation are treated.
