Under these conditions, the airflow within the cold aisle will be inviscid, incompressible, and irrotational.
Solutions were run with an inviscid flow assumption.
Laplace equation with Dirichlet boundary conditions arises in different areas such as electrostatics (where it describes the electrostatic potential in a charge-free region), gravitation (where it describes the gravitational potential in free space), steady state flow of inviscid fluids, and steady state heat conduction.
appeared not only in the study of the dynamics of thin inviscid layers with free surface but also in the study of the nonlinear string, the shape-memory alloys, the propagation of waves in elastic rods and in the continuum limit of lattice dynamics or coupled electrical circuit.
For the hydrodynamic aspect, the ideal fluid assumption is adopted; that is, the fluid is inviscid, irrotational, and incompressible.
The Newtonian theory is an inviscid, hypersonic flow theory, which could not account for certain extreme viscous effects in the flow field of the model, especially at higher AOA.
Inviscid incompressible and compressible flows are then examined as a prelude to viscous flows.
Because the gas is assumed to be ideal (inviscid), the radial deviatoric stress component for the gas is zero.

The fundamentals of the coordinate transformation approach are based on the observation that mass and momentum equations for an inviscid fluid at rest under small pressure perturbation exhibit a strict formal analogy with the single polarization Maxwell equations, provided that suitable variables exchange is introduced.
