Boussinesq equation was derived for wave field without energy dissipation under the assumption of inviscid and irrotational flow, and is not theoretically applicable to wave fields with energy dissipation, such as breaking waves and turbulent flow field around coastal structures.

Due to the Birkhoff theorem, regions of Schwarzschild's metric accurately represent the gravity external to spherically symmetric bodies such as irrotational stars and planets.
W] axis; irrotational dissipation is dominant when the probability distribution is located near the -[Q.
Green theory states that every incompressible and irrotational flow can be simulated by source, dipole, or vortex distribution on its boundary surfaces [4].
The liquid flow around the vapor bubble is considered as an irrotational flow and then the flow around the vapor bubble is a potential flow.
T]) with viscosity [mu] and unit matrix I is introduced, while the electric field is continuous and irrotational in both inside (0 [less than or equal to] r < h) and outside (h < r < L) the jet because of no electric charge and no magnetic field (the magnetic field acts passively in a slightly conducting fluid even if it exists):
Robert Brady in "The Irrotational of of Compressible Inviscid Fluid" outlines a comprehensive physical mapping between quantum mechanical theory and fluid dynamics in which he not only provides an analog for gravity but also introduces the concept of a relativistic quasiparticle called a 'sonon' which exhibits spin G symmetry (Brady 2013).
In this example, we use the integral equation with the generalized Neumann kernel to find solutions for a steady irrotational uniform flow past the islands in Figure 8.
Irrotational Flow and Real Fluid Effect under Planer Sluice Gate.
Covering first irrotational flow motion of an ideal fluid, then the theory and applications of real fluid flows, he discusses such topics as ideal fluid flows and irrotational flow motion; basic equations and flow analogies for two-dimensional flows; Joukowski transformation, the theorem of Kutta-Jourkowski, and lift force on an airfoil; and turbulence, and applying boundary layer theory to laminar boundary layer flows.
