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: 3540616527
Release Date: 1997-07-07
Genre: Science

This collection of over 200 detailed worked exercises adds to and complements the textbook "Fluid Mechanics" by the same author, and, at the same time, illustrates the teaching material via examples. The exercises revolve around applying the fundamental concepts of "Fluid Mechanics" to obtain solutions to diverse concrete problems, and, in so doing, the students' skill in the mathematical modelling of practical problems is developed. In addition, 30 challenging questions WITHOUT detailed solutions have been included. While lecturers will find these questions suitable for examinations and tests, students themselves can use them to check their understanding of the subject.

Fluid Mechanics

Author: David Pnueli
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521587972
Release Date: 1997-01-13
Genre: Science

This text is intended for the study of fluid mechanics at an intermediate level. The presentation starts with basic concepts, in order to form a sound conceptual structure that can support engineering applications and encourage further learning. The presentation is exact, incorporating both the mathematics involved and the physics needed to understand the various phenomena in fluid mechanics. Where a didactical choice must be made between the two, the physics prevails. Throughout the book the authors have tried to reach a balance between exact presentation, intuitive grasp of new ideas, and creative applications of concepts. This approach is reflected in the examples presented in the text and in the exercises given at the end of each chapter. Subjects treated are hydrostatics, viscous flow, similitude and order of magnitude, creeping flow, potential flow, boundary layer flow, turbulent flow, compressible flow, and non-Newtonian flows. This book is ideal for advanced undergraduate students in mechanical, chemical, aerospace, and civil engineering. Solutions manual available.

Cardiovascular Fluid Mechanics

Author: Gianni Pedrizzetti
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 3211005382
Release Date: 2003-10-21
Genre: Technology & Engineering

The book presents the state of the art in the interdisciplinary field of fluid mechanics applied to cardiovascular modelling. It is neither a monograph nor a collection of research papers, rather an extended review in the field. It is arranged in 4 scientific chapters each presenting thoroughly the approach of a leading research team; two additional chapters prepared by biomedical scientists present the topic by the applied perspective. A unique feature is a substantial (approx. one fourth of the book) medical introductory part, written by clinical researchers for scientific readers, that would require a large effort to be collected otherwise.

Elementary Fluid Mechanics

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.
