The complete set of equations describing the motion of a general compressible, viscous, heat-conducting, and possibly rotating fluid arises as a mathematical model in a large variety of real world applications. The scale analysis aims at two different objectives: Rigorous derivation of a simplified asymptotic set of equations and understanding the passage from the original primitive system to the simplified target system. These issues are discussed in the context of compressible, viscous, heat conducting, and/or rotating fluids.
