Genre: Technology & Engineering

In this new edition of Fluid Mechanics, which is a revised and substantially expanded version of the first edition, several new topics like open channel flow, hydraulic turbines, hydraulic transients, flow measurements and pumps and fans have been added. The chapter on one-dimensional viscous flow has also been expanded. With the addition of five new chapters, the treatment is now more indepth and comprehensive.The book gives a thorough analysis of topics such as fluid statics, fluid kinematics, analysis of finite control volumes, and the mechanical energy equation. It provides a comprehensive description of one- dimensional viscous flow, dimensional analysis, two-dimensional flow of ideal fluids, and normal and oblique shocks.Each chapter ends with a Summary and Exercises, which enables the student to recapture the topics discussed and drill him in the theory. Finally, the worked-out examples_with solutions to most of them_should be of considerable assistance to the reader in comprehending the problems discussed. The book should prove to be an ideal text for the undergraduate students of Civil and Mechanical Engineering and as a ready reference for the first-level postgraduate student.

ISBN: 9789812564160
Release Date: 2007
Genre: Science

This textbook describes the fundamental ?physical? aspects of fluid flows for beginners of fluid mechanics in physics, mathematics and engineering, from the point of view of modern physics.It also emphasizes the dynamical aspects of fluid motions rather than the static aspects, illustrating vortex motions, waves, geophysical flows, chaos and turbulence. Beginning with the fundamental concepts of the nature of flows and the properties of fluids, the book presents fundamental conservation equations of mass, momentum and energy, and the equations of motion for both inviscid and viscous fluids.In addition to the fundamentals, this book also covers water waves and sound waves, vortex motions, geophysical flows, nonlinear instability, chaos, and turbulence. Furthermore, it includes the chapters on superfluids and the gauge theory of fluid flows.The material in the book emerged from the lecture notes for an intensive course on Elementary Fluid Mechanics for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of theoretical physics given in 2003 and 2004 at the Nankai Institute of Mathematics (Tianjin) in China. Hence, each chapter may be presented separately as a single lecture.

Genre: Science

The multidisciplinary field of fluid mechanics is one of the most actively developing fields of physics, mathematics and engineering. In this book, the fundamental ideas of fluid mechanics are presented from a physics perspective. Using examples taken from everyday life, from hydraulic jumps in a kitchen sink to Kelvin–Helmholtz instabilities in clouds, the book provides readers with a better understanding of the world around them. It teaches the art of fluid-mechanical estimates and shows how the ideas and methods developed to study the mechanics of fluids are used to analyze other systems with many degrees of freedom in statistical physics and field theory. Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students, the book assumes no prior knowledge of the subject and only a basic understanding of vector calculus and analysis. It contains 32 exercises of varying difficulties, from simple estimates to elaborate calculations, with detailed solutions to help readers understand fluid mechanics.
