Synopsis: A clear and concise introduction to the physics of low speed fluid mechanics, emphasising fundamental concepts and methods.
This book is designed as a one semester coursebook providing a sound foundation in continuum mechanics. The choice and treatment of topics provides a fresh approach aimed at making the more abstruse aspects of the subjects more accessible to students, and easier to teach. Mathematical difficulty progresses through the book with only a basic knowledge of differential calculus assumed at the outset. Where appropriate an alternative, more advanced, treatment has been provided.
Plenty of illustrations and worked examples are used to clarify each new concept, and exercises are provided at the end of each chapter to test the student's knowledge and understanding, and assist in the development of problem-solving skills.
The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material on geostrophic flow and the instability of stratified flow.
