Course of Theoretical Physics, Volume 6: Fluid Mechanics discusses several areas of concerns regarding fluid mechanics. The book provides a discussion on the phenomenon in fluid mechanics and their intercorrelations, such as heat transfer, diffusion in fluids, acoustics, theory of combustion, dynamics of superfluids, and relativistic fluid dynamics. The text will be of great interest to researchers whose work involves or concerns fluid mechanics.

A superb learning and teaching resource, this structured introduction to fluid mechanics covers everything the engineer needs to know: the nature of fluids, hydrostatics, differential and integral relations, dimensional analysis, viscous flows, and another topics. Solutions to selected problems. 760 illustrations. 1985 edition.
Applications of the science of fluid mechanics to the new and expanding fields of industrial safety and environmental protection are discussed in this volume. The material is organized in accordance with the chain-of-events in real accidents, starting with the loss of containment of hazardous fluids, going on to the spreading and mixing processes in water or air, and ending with the damage loads caused by explosions, fires or toxic content. To develop solutions relevant to the wide range of problems considered, it is necessary to draw on material from various branches of fluid mechanics, i.e. from the engineering fields (aero- and gas- and hydrodynamics, hydraulics, heat transfer and two-phase flows) as well as from geophysics (environmental flows, boundary-layer meteorology). The relevant solutions are developed from the fundamental equations, but are kept simple for transparency and understanding. To achieve this, the simplifications offered by scaling, similarity and entrainment concepts are used extensively. Many of the solutions are novel but have been confirmed by laboratory experiments. The material in the book has been used as a teaching text on Master's level, but the content will be useful also for practising engineers and scientists engaged in safety and environmental impact. The problems considered have been encountered in consultancy work for industry and government agencies. The coherent presentation and the fundamental basis for analytical developments, makes the material accessible also to readers not acquainted with the field.

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.
Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations-whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both-is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Fluid Mechanics, Fourth Edition is the leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics. Changes for the 4th edition from the 3rd edition: Updates to several chapters and sections, including Boundary Layers, Turbulence, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Thermodynamics and Compressibility Fully revised and updated chapter on computational fluid dynamics New chapter on Biofluid Mechanics by Professor Portonovo Ayyaswamy, the Asa Whitney Professor of Dynamical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania

There has been developing interest in the aspects of fluid mechanics and of magnetohydrodynamics that can be properly described as topological, rather than exclusively analytical in character. This book contains the proceedings of the IUTAM symposium on Topological Fluid Mechanics held at Cambridge UK, 13-18 August, 1989. Topics covered include the kinematic and dynamical problems in laminar and turbulent flows, as well as the range of problems that arise from the magnetohydrodynamics of highly conducting flows. The papers presented cover all approaches; theoretical, computational and experimental, and each paper has been edited by a member of the International Scientific Committee.

It is a long way from the first edition in 1976 to the present sixth edition in 1995.This edition is dedicated to the memory of Prof.S.P.Luthra(Once Head,Applied Mechanics Director,IIT Delhi)who wrote the foreword to its first edition.So many faculty members and students from different parts of the country ad from abroad have acceptedthe text and contributed to its development.The book has been improved and updated with every edition.
This revised edition provides updated fluid mechanics measurement techniques as well as a comprehensive review of flow properties required for research, development, and application. Fluid-mechanics measurements in wind tunnel studies, aeroacoustics, and turbulent mixing layers, the theory of fluid mechanics, the application of the laws of fluid mechanics to measurement techniques, techniques of thermal anemometry, laser velocimetry, volume flow measurement techniques, and fluid mechanics measurement in non-Newtonian fluids, and various other techniques are discussed.
Dieses Lehrbuch stützt sich auf mathematische und physikalische Grundkenntnisse von Studenten mittlerer Semester. Es erläutert den Zusammenhang moderner Strömungsmechanik zur technischen Mechanik und bezieht moderne Mess- und numerische Berechnungsverfahren ein. Jedes Kapitel enthält den Stoff einer einwöchigen Vorlesung, der so aufgebaut ist, dass er Studenten an die jeweilige Spezialliteratur heranführt.
