48) can also be written as ∂ρ ∂(ρv ) + = 0. 49) This equation is known as the continuity equation. We have already used it in the example of trafﬁc ﬂow. 2 Balance of (Linear) Momentum Although originally formulated for a single material particle and then extended to discrete systems, Newton’s second law of motion is postulated to be applicable also to continuous systems. The quantity to be balanced is the total linear9 momentum, whose Lagrangian density is ρ0 v (per unit length in the reference conﬁguration).
29), express the temperature as a Lagrangian ﬁeld over the reference conﬁguration. 29) by ﬁrst obtaining the Lagrangian ﬁeld and then explicitly inverting the equation of motion as X = X (x , t). 10 The Material Derivative A similar treatment of derivatives with respect to the time variable gives rise to the important notion of the material derivative or, more precisely, material time derivative. 37) where v (X , t) is the referential version of the velocity ﬁeld. 37) can also be written as ˆ , t) ∂ψ(X , t) ∂ ψ(x = + (grad ψ) v (X , t).
49), we obtain ∂ ρˆ ∂(ρv ˆ ) ∂ ln sˆ (x ) + + ρv ˆ = 0. 57) If the cross section is constant the last term cancels out. Similarly, the internal force n(x , t), in the case of a gas, is obtained by multiplying the pressure p(x , t) times the cross-sectional area sˆ (x ), namely, n(x , t) = −p(x , t) sˆ (x ). 58) The negative sign is placed for consistency, since a positive pressure corresponds to compression. 53)) yields ρˆ ∂v (x , t) ∂v (x , t) ∂p ∂ ln sˆ (x ) + ρˆ v (x , t) = − − p(x , t) . 59) Once again, if the cross section is constant (which we will henceforth assume) the last term cancels out.
