Synopsis: Description: The text is a well-written introduction for a basal course in mechanical engineering. Rigorous in its approach, the book is distinguishable by the choice and order of subject matter, its careful derivation and explanation of the laws of fluid mechanics, and its attention to everyday examples of fluid flow and common engineering applications.The text introduces the principles of fluid mechanics in a well organised and methodical manner, beginning with the simple and proceeding to the complex. At each stage, practical engineering problems are solved, principally in engineering systems such as dams, pumps, turbines, pipe flows, but with occasional illustrations from physiological and meteorological flows. The approach builds on the students' everyday experience with fluid mechanics, showing how scientific principles permit a quantitative understanding of what is happening and provide a basis for designing engineering systems that achieve the desired objectives. Contents: Introduction. Fluid Statics. Conservation of Mass. Inviscid Flow. Conservation of Momentum. Laminar Viscous Flow. Turbulent Viscous Flow. Conservation of Energy. Flow in Fluid Systems. Dimensional Analysis and Modeling. Irrotational Flow. Compressible Flow. Index.
