MASS TRANSPORT IN VOCOIDAL THEORY

J.W. Gonsalves, D.H. Swart

Abstract


The concept of mass transport is theoretically discussed within the framework provided by Vocoidal theory. The Lagrangian mass transport is divided into two parts; firstly treating the fluid as being inviscid and secondly, incorporating viscosity by means of the free surface and bottom boundaries. Eulerian mass transport is defined and is shown to correspond, in deep water, to the net flow predicted by Stokes and others.
