Using the Wigner transform of the one-body density matrix we extract a collective hamiltonian from the TDHF energy functional for slow nuclear collective motions. For a rotating nucleus and for small vibrations we find solutions of the Vlasov equation which allow an explicit evaluation of currents, inertial parameters and eigenfrequencies. The extension to generalized scaling modes is analysed to show that the TDHF-Fluid-Dynamical chain of equations can be exactly truncated. Quantum effects, one-body damping mechanisms and the elasticity limit are finally discussed.
