A typical boundary condition is the so-called no-slip condition which reads u=0 on the boundary of the fluid domain. The constraint div u = 0 enforces the incompressibility of the fluid and serves to determine the pressure p from the evolution equation for the fluid velocity u. If ν = 0 then the so called incompressible Euler8 equations, valid for very small viscosity flows (ideal fluids), are obtained. Note that the viscous Navier– Stokes equations form a parabolic system while the Euler equations (inviscid case) are hyperbolic.

The significance of this is apparent when one considers the following data: – In the chemical industry approximately one-half of the products and at least three-quarters of the raw materials are in granular form. – Landslides cause more than one billion dollars of property damage and at least 25 fatalities in the United States annually (FEMA). – In Mexico 5 million tons of corn are handled each year, 30% of which is lost due to poor handling systems. Even small increases in efficiency can make a significant economic impact.
