It is used to recast time derivatives of integrated quantities and is useful in formulating the basic equations of continuum mechanics.

Consider integrating f = f(x,t) over the time-dependent region Ω(t) that has boundary ∂Ω(t), then taking the derivative with respect to time: {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} ,dV.} If we wish to move the derivative within the integral, there are two issues: the time dependence of f, and the introduction of and removal of space from Ω due to its dynamic boundary. Reynolds transport theorem provides the necessary framework.

The function f may be tensor-, vector- or scalar-valued.[4] Note that the integral on the left hand side is a function solely of time, and so the total derivative has been used.

Form for a material element In continuum mechanics, this theorem is often used for material elements. These are parcels of fluids or solids which no material enters or leaves. If Ω(t) is a material element then there is a velocity function v = v(x,t), and the boundary elements obey {displaystyle mathbf {v} ^{b}cdot mathbf {n} =mathbf {v} cdot mathbf {n} .} This condition may be substituted to obtain:[5] {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} ,dVright)=int _{Omega (t)}{frac {partial mathbf {f} }{partial t}},dV+int _{partial Omega (t)}(mathbf {v} cdot mathbf {n} )mathbf {f} ,dA.} Proof for a material element Let Ω0 be reference configuration of the region Ω(t). Let the motion and the deformation gradient be given by {displaystyle mathbf {x} ={boldsymbol {varphi }}(mathbf {X} ,t),} {displaystyle {boldsymbol {F}}(mathbf {X} ,t)={boldsymbol {nabla }}{boldsymbol {varphi }}.} Let J(X,t) = det F(X,t). Define {displaystyle {hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t)=mathbf {f} ({boldsymbol {varphi }}(mathbf {X} ,t),t).} Then the integrals in the current and the reference configurations are related by {displaystyle {begin{aligned}int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dV&=int _{Omega _{0}}mathbf {f} ({boldsymbol {varphi }}(mathbf {X} ,t),t),J(mathbf {X} ,t),dV_{0}\&=int _{Omega _{0}}{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),J(mathbf {X} ,t),dV_{0}.end{aligned}}} That this derivation is for a material element is implicit in the time constancy of the reference configuration: it is constant in material coordinates. The time derivative of an integral over a volume is defined as {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright)=lim _{Delta trightarrow 0}{frac {1}{Delta t}}left(int _{Omega (t+Delta t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t+Delta t),dV-int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright).} Converting into integrals over the reference configuration, we get {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright)=lim _{Delta trightarrow 0}{frac {1}{Delta t}}left(int _{Omega _{0}}{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t+Delta t),J(mathbf {X} ,t+Delta t),dV_{0}-int _{Omega _{0}}{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),J(mathbf {X} ,t),dV_{0}right).} Since Ω0 is independent of time, we have {displaystyle {begin{aligned}{frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright)&=int _{Omega _{0}}left(lim _{Delta trightarrow 0}{frac {{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t+Delta t),J(mathbf {X} ,t+Delta t)-{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),J(mathbf {X} ,t)}{Delta t}}right),dV_{0}\&=int _{Omega _{0}}{frac {partial }{partial t}}left({hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),J(mathbf {X} ,t)right),dV_{0}\&=int _{Omega _{0}}left({frac {partial }{partial t}}{big (}{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t){big )},J(mathbf {X} ,t)+{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),{frac {partial }{partial t}}{big (}J(mathbf {X} ,t){big )}right),dV_{0}.end{aligned}}} The time derivative of J is given by:[6] {displaystyle {begin{aligned}{frac {partial J(mathbf {X} ,t)}{partial t}}={frac {partial }{partial t}}(det {boldsymbol {F}})&=(det {boldsymbol {F}})({boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} )\&=J(mathbf {X} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} {big (}{boldsymbol {varphi }}(mathbf {X} ,t),t{big )}\&=J(mathbf {X} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t).end{aligned}}} Therefore, {displaystyle {begin{aligned}{frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright)&=int _{Omega _{0}}left({frac {partial }{partial t}}left({hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t)right),J(mathbf {X} ,t)+{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),J(mathbf {X} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t)right),dV_{0}\&=int _{Omega _{0}}left({frac {partial }{partial t}}left({hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t)right)+{hat {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {X} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t)right),J(mathbf {X} ,t),dV_{0}\&=int _{Omega (t)}left({dot {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {x} ,t)+mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t)right),dV.end{aligned}}} where {displaystyle {dot {mathbf {f} }}} is the material time derivative of f. The material derivative is given by {displaystyle {dot {mathbf {f} }}(mathbf {x} ,t)={frac {partial mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t)}{partial t}}+{big (}{boldsymbol {nabla }}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t){big )}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t).} Therefore, {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),dVright)=int _{Omega (t)}left({frac {partial mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t)}{partial t}}+{big (}{boldsymbol {nabla }}mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t){big )}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t)+mathbf {f} (mathbf {x} ,t),{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} (mathbf {x} ,t)right),dV,} or, {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} ,dVright)=int _{Omega (t)}left({frac {partial mathbf {f} }{partial t}}+{boldsymbol {nabla }}mathbf {f} cdot mathbf {v} +mathbf {f} ,{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {v} right),dV.} Using the identity {displaystyle {boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot (mathbf {v} otimes mathbf {w} )=mathbf {v} ({boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot mathbf {w} )+{boldsymbol {nabla }}mathbf {v} cdot mathbf {w} ,} we then have {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} ,dVright)=int _{Omega (t)}left({frac {partial mathbf {f} }{partial t}}+{boldsymbol {nabla }}cdot (mathbf {f} otimes mathbf {v} )right),dV.} Using the divergence theorem and the identity (a ⊗ b) · n = (b · n)a, we have {displaystyle {begin{aligned}{frac {d}{dt}}left(int _{Omega (t)}mathbf {f} ,dVright)&=int _{Omega (t)}{frac {partial mathbf {f} }{partial t}},dV+int _{partial Omega (t)}(mathbf {f} otimes mathbf {v} )cdot mathbf {n} ,dA\&=int _{Omega (t)}{frac {partial mathbf {f} }{partial t}},dV+int _{partial Omega (t)}(mathbf {v} cdot mathbf {n} )mathbf {f} ,dA.qquad square end{aligned}}} A special case If we take Ω to be constant with respect to time, then vb = 0 and the identity reduces to {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}int _{Omega }f,dV=int _{Omega }{frac {partial f}{partial t}},dV.} as expected. (This simplification is not possible if the flow velocity is incorrectly used in place of the velocity of an area element.) Interpretation and reduction to one dimension The theorem is the higher-dimensional extension of differentiation under the integral sign and reduces to that expression in some cases. Suppose f is independent of y and z, and that Ω(t) is a unit square in the yz-plane and has x limits a(t) and b(t). Then Reynolds transport theorem reduces to {displaystyle {frac {d}{dt}}int _{a(t)}^{b(t)}f(x,t),dx=int _{a(t)}^{b(t)}{frac {partial f}{partial t}},dx+{frac {partial b(t)}{partial t}}f{big (}b(t),t{big )}-{frac {partial a(t)}{partial t}}f{big (}a(t),t{big )},,} which, up to swapping x and t, is the standard expression for differentiation under the integral sign.
