Eulerian coordinates

[ȯi′ler·ē·ən kō′ȯrd·ən‚əts]
(fluid mechanics)
Any system of coordinates in which properties of a fluid are assigned to points in space at each given time, without attempt to identify individual fluid parcels from one time to the next; a sequence of synoptic charts is a Eulerian representation of the data.

The point on RBC boundary r is characterized by the Lagrangian parameters X(s,t), and the fluid domain [OMEGA] is represented by the Eulerian coordinates x.
In Eulerian coordinates system the steady streaming is given as follows:
