This leads to the integrated form of the steady transport equation: Ύ n . (ρφu)dA = Ύ n . 43) CV In time-dependent problems it is also necessary to integrate with respect to time t over a small interval ∆t from, say, t until t + ∆t. This yields the most general integrated form of the transport equation: A D Ύ ∂∂t BC Ύ ρφ dVEF dt + Ύ Ύ n . (ρφu)dAdt ∆t CV = Ύ Ύ n . 44) CV Now that we have derived the conservation equations of ﬂuid ﬂows the time has come to turn our attention to the issue of the initial and boundary conditions that are needed in conjunction with the equations to construct a well-posed mathematical model of a ﬂuid ﬂow.

49) The ﬁrst component of the solution, function F1, is constant if x − ct is constant and hence along lines of slope dt/dx = 1/c in the x–t plane. The second component F2 is constant if x + ct is constant, so along lines of slope dt/dx = −1/c. The lines x − ct = constant and x + ct = constant are called the characteristics. Functions F1 and F2 represent the so-called simple wave solutions of the problem, which are travelling waves with velocities +c and −c without change of shape or amplitude.

If the free stream Mach number is smaller than 1 (subsonic ﬂow) both eigenvalues are greater than zero and the ﬂow is elliptic. If the Mach number is greater than 1 (supersonic ﬂow) the second eigenvalue is negative and the ﬂow is hyperbolic. 54). 10 CONDITIONS FOR VISCOUS FLUID FLOW EQUATIONS 35 It is interesting to note that we have discovered an instance of hyperbolic behaviour in a steady ﬂow where both independent variables are space coordinates. The ﬂow direction behaves in a time-like manner in hyperbolic inviscid ﬂows and also in the parabolic thin shear layers.
