Convection

Convection is a type of transport (of matter and energy), absent in solids and negligible for very viscous fluids, caused by a pressure gradient and the force of gravity and characterized by circulation motions inside the fluid. The …

Advection

Advection is the transport of a substance (and its properties) by bulk motion. During advection, a fluid transports some conserved quantity or material via bulk motion. The fluid’s motion is described mathematically as a …
