We rigorously derive pressureless Euler-type equations with nonlocal dissipative terms in velocity and aggregation equations with nonlocal velocity fields from Newton-type particle descriptions of swarming models with alignment interactions. Crucially, we make use of a discrete version of a modulated kinetic energy together with the bounded Lipschitz distance for measures in order to control terms in its time derivative due to the nonlocal interactions.
