9780121782511: Fluid Mechanics, Second Edition

This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds from the fundamentals, often in a very general way, to widespread applications to technology and geophysics. In most areas, an understanding of this book can be followed up by specialized monographs and the research literature.

The material added to this new edition will provide insights gathered over 45 years of studying fluid mechanics. Many of these insights, such as universal dimensionless similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations, are available nowhere else. Likewise for the generalized vector field derivatives. Other material, such as the generalized stream function treatment, shows how stream functions may be used in three-dimensional flows. The CFD chapter enables computations of some simple flows and provides entrée to more advanced literature.

*New and generalized treatment of similar laminar boundary layers.
*Generalized treatment of streamfunctions for
three-dimensional flow .
*Generalized treatment of vector field derivatives.
*Expanded coverage of gas dynamics.
*New introduction to computational fluid dynamics.
*New generalized treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics.
*Expanded treatment of viscous flow with more examples.

Book Description:

A basic but comprehensive introductory text on the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and applications in engineering and science.

From the Back Cover:

Fluid mechanics is the science that studies the motions and forces acting on fluids such as gases and liquids.These motions are ubiquitous in the world around us,ranging in scale from the movements of single-celled micro-organisms such as paramecia to large-scale motions of the oceans or
atmosphere. Of particular interest is the calculation of the forces on the boundaries adjoining the fluid. This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds up from the fundamentals, often in a very general way, to
widespread applications to technology and geophysics.

New to this second edition are discussions on the universal dimensionless similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations and on the generalized vector field derivatives. In addition, new material on the generalized streamfunction treatment show how streamfunctions may be
used in three-dimensional flow. Finally, a new Computational Fluid Dynamics chapter enables computations of some simple flow and provides entrée to more advanced literature.

Features:

*New and generalized treatment of similar laminar boundary layers.

*Generalized treatment of streamfunctions for three-dimensional flow .

*Generalized treatment of vector field derivatives.

*Expanded coverage of gas dynamics.

*New introduction to computational fluid dynamics.

*New generalized treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics.

*Expanded treatment of viscous flow with more examples.
