The variational principle of barotropic Eulerian fluid dynamics is known to be quite cumbersome containing as much as eleven independent functions. This is much more than the the four functions (density and velocity) appearing in the Eulerian equations of motion. This fact may have discouraged applications of the variational method. In this paper a four function Eulerian variational principle is suggested and the implications are discussed briefly.

Mathematical Principles of Classical Fluid Mechanics

Classical fluid mechanics is a branch of continuum mechanics; that is, it proceeds on the assumption that a fluid is practically continuous and homogeneous in structure. The fundamental property

The Physics of Fluids

A localized arc-filament plasma actuator, which in this application is recessed in a small cavity near the nozzle lip, causes intense local heating. This heating is thought to be the root mechanism
