Aus Symmetrieüberlegungen (bei starrer Rotation wird keine innere Reibung wirksam) lässt sich zeigen, dass der Spannungstensor bei inkompressiblen Fluiden folgende symmetrisierte Gestalt haben muss:  sik ¼ Àpdik þ Z qvi qvk þ qxk qxi  À Á ¼ Àpdik þ Z vi,k þ vk, i 14). ðGleichung 3:33Þ (Wenn das Fluid kompressibel ist, tritt noch ein weiterer Reibungskoeffizient hinzu). Der Koeffizient Z wird dynamische Zähigkeit genannt und hat im SI-System die Einheit [Pa s] = [kg m−1 s−1] (ältere Einheit 1 Poise = 0,1 kg m−1 s−1).

Unterwasserschiff als gegeben hingenommen. Nun wollen wir die Grundlagen für das physikalische Verständnis dafür legen, wie diese Kräfte zustande kommen. In der Strömungslehre wird das Fluid (Flüssigkeit oder Gas) als Kontinuum angesehen, dessen Zustand bei konstanter Temperatur durch ein Strömungsfeld v(x,t), ein Druckfeld p(x,t) sowie ein Dichtefeld r(x,t) vollständig beschrieben wird.

Die Metazentrische Höhe GM ist der Abstand des Metazentrums vom Schwerpunkt der Yacht. Sie ist eine wichtige Kenngröße für die Stabilität. Aus ihr lässt sich der aufrichtende Hebelarm xa und damit das aufrichtende Drehmoment Ma berechnen: xa ¼ GM sin f ðGleichung 2:2aÞ Ma ¼ xa D, ðGleichung 2:2bÞ wobei D die Wasserverdrängung (betragsmäßig identisch mit dem Gewicht) der Yacht ist.
