Of Related Interest Fluid Mechanics through Problems R.J. Garde This book is an outcome of author’s over thirty years of teaching Fluid Mechanics to undergraduate and postgraduate students. The book is written with the purpose that, through this book, student should appreciate the strength and limitations of the theory, and also its potential for application in solving a variety of engineering problems of practical importance. It makes available to the students, appearing for diploma and undergraduate courses in Civil, Chemical and Mechanical Engineering, a book which briefly introduces the necessary theory, followed by a set of descriptive/objective questions. In seventeen chapters the book covers the broad areas of fluid properties, kinematics, dynamics, dimensional analysis, laminar flow, boundary layer theory, turbulent flow, forces on immersed bodies, open channel flow, compressible and unsteady flows, and pumps and turbines. Mechanics of Sediment Transportation and Alluvial Stream Problems R.J. Garde and K.G. Ranga Raju This is the second edition of the book which was first published in 1977. The first part of the book covering eight chapters is devoted to a discussion of the fundamental processes in the mechanics of sediment transportation, such as sediment properties, bedform and resistance analysis and sediment transport. The remaining nine chapters forming the second part deal with applied problems in alluvial streams such as sampling, stable channel design, aggradation, degradation, plan-form variation, river training, sediment control, sediment transport through pipes, etc. The book takes a balanced view of theory and practice and will, therefore, be invaluable to researchers, planners and designers.

Turbulent Flow is the outcome of author’s teaching of the course on Advanced Fluid Mechanics to post-graduate students over a number of years, and represents an enlarged version of monograph on the same topic written by the author and published by the University of Roorkee in 1977. The book is written with the purpose that, through this book practising engineers and post-graduate students are exposed to the advances in the field of turbulent flow and their implications in practice. There has been a long felt need for such a book because, in spite of a number of books published on the subject, very little of the new information on the subject has permeated to the practising engineers dealing with hydraulic analysis and design, building aerodynamics and environmental analysis and design. In ten chapters the book covers laminar flow, transition from laminar to turbulent flow, nature of turbulence, equations of motion, statistical theory of turbulence, turbulence models, turbulence measurement, and descriptions of wall turbulent shear flows, free surface flows, and free tubulence shear flows.About the Author:
R.J. Garde obtained M.S. and Ph.D. from Colorado State University, U.S.A. and D.Sc. from Poona University, India. He was Professor of Hydraulic Engineering at the University of Roorkee, India and was engaged in teaching and research in Fluid Mechanics and Fluvial Hydraulics and the related consultancy work. He was also Pro Vice Chancellor at Indira Gandhi National Open University, India during 1988–91. He is Fellow of the Indian National Science Academy, Indian National Academy of Engineering, and Institution of Engineers (India), and Member of IAHR and IWRS. He is co-author of text book on Engineering Fluid Mechanics and a book on Mechanics of Sediment Transportation and Alluvial Stream Problems, and author of book on Fluid Mechanics through Problems.
