Nonlinear hydrodynamics was used in a transparent way to evaluate disorder-induced corrections to the wavevector dependent tilt modulus for finite values of the screening length and arbitrary disorder geometry. The connection of the hydrodynamic formulation to the charged boson formalism was discussed. Results showed that hydrodynamics provides a physically transparent framework for evaluating disorder-induced corrections to the elastic constants of the vortex liquid. It naturally incorporates the full nonlocality of the intervortex interaction and it allows the computation of finite-wavevector elastic constants for arbitrary disorder geometry.
