vorticity equation

[vȯr′tis·əd·ē i‚kwā·zhən]
(fluid mechanics)
An equation of fluid mechanics describing horizontal circulation in the motion of particles around a vertical axis: (d / dt) (S + f) = - (S + f) divh c, where (S + f) is the absolute vorticity (S is the relative vorticity and f is the Coriolis parameter) and divh c is the horizontal divergence of the fluid velocity.

The vorticity transport equation will be obtained by taking curl of momentum equation (2) and using mass conservation (1).
The equations that govern the incompressible laminar flow are the vorticity transport equation,
In the numerical method, the vorticity transport equation is first solved and then the pressure distribution equation is solved without any assumptions made for pressure distribution.
