Contents Notes
Introduction -- Pressure distribution in a fluid -- Integral relations for a control volume -- Differential relations for fluid flow -- Dimensional analysis and similarity -- Viscous flow in ducts -- Flow past immersed bodies -- Potential flow and computational fluid dynamics -- Compressible flow -- Open-channel flow -- Turbomachinery -- Appendix A. Physical properties of fluids -- Appendix B. Compressible flow tables -- Appendix C. Conversion factors -- Appendix D. Equations of motion in cylindrical coordinates. This book aims to balance three separate approaches - integral, differential and experimental - to provide a foundation for fluid mechanics concepts and applications. After covering the basics, it moves on to applications, with chapters on ducts, compressible flow, open channel flow and turbomachinery.
