Mathematically, for the case of constant coefficients, the net local balance of transport by diffusion around a fluid particle is proportional to the diffusion coefficient α and the Laplacian, α∆c = α ∂2c ∂2c ∂2c + 2+ 2 2 ∂x1 ∂x2 ∂x3 20 2 Elementary Fluid Kinematics and it contains second derivatives. ) of molecules at the microscopic level, which tends to make the properties uniform. An important trait of transport by diffusion is that it can occur at a zero macroscopic velocity. As an example, heat in a solid propagates by diffusion.

The process is very similar to the one presented above, differing only in the way the boundary conditions are imposed. Assume that a tracer is injected into the flow field at the point (x0 , y0 ). Then, proceed in three steps: 1. Integrate the equation of motion. 2. Calculate the integration constants, such that at time ξ < t the fluid particle was at (x0 , y0 ). Here ξ is the parameter that designates the particle, by the time it passed through the injection point. What we have done is to obtain all the trajectories of the particles that were injected in the flow field before the present time t.

21) dr rdθ with u and v the velocity components in the r and θ directions, respectively. 8 (Streamline). Calculate the streamlines for the unsteady, twodimensional flow field given by, u v = 2x(t + 1) = 2y(t − 1) Particularize for the case in which the streamline passes through the point (x0 , y0 ) at all times. Solution. 2 Calculation of Trajectories A trajectory is the path followed by a fluid particle. 22) where (x, y, z) is the position of the particle as a function of time. As boundary condition we will need the position of a particle at a given time.
