ELEMENTARY FLUID MECHANICS BY JOHN K. VENNARD Assistant Professor of Fluid Mechanics New York University NEW YORK JOHN WILEY SONS, INC. LONDON CHAPMAN HALL, LIMITED 1940 COPYRIGHT, 1940, BY JOHN K. VENNARD All Rights Reserved This book or any part thereof must not be reproduced in any form without the written permission of the publisher. PRINTED IN U. S. A. PRESS OP BRAONWORTH A CO.. INC. BRIDGEPORT. CONN. ELEMENTARY FLUID MECHANICS PREFACE Fluid mechanics is the study under all possible conditions of rest and motion. Its approaches analytical, rational, and mathematical rather than empirical it concerns itself with those basic principles which lead to the solution of numerous diversified problems, and it seeks results which are widely applicable to similar fluid situations and not limited to isolated special cases. Fluid mechanics recognizes no arbitrary boundaries between fields of engineering knowledge but attempts to solve all fluid problems, irrespective of their occurrence or of the characteristics of the fluids involved. This textbook is intended primarily for the beginner who knows the principles of mathematics and mechanics but has had no previous experience with fluid phenomena. The abilities of the average beginner and the tremendous scope of fluid mechanics appear to be in conflict, and the former obviously determine limits beyond which it is not feasible to go these practical limits represent the boundaries of the subject which I have chosen to call elementary fluid mechanics. The apparent conflict between scope of subject and beginner f s ability is only along mathematical lines, however, and the physical ideas of fluid mechanics are well within the reach of the beginner in the field. Holding to the belief that physical concepts are the sine qua non of mechanics, I have sacrificed mathematical rigor and detail in developing physical pictures and in many cases have stated general laws only without numerous exceptions and limitations in order to convey basic ideas such oversimplification is necessary in introducing a new subject to the beginner. Like other courses in mechanics, fluid mechanics must include disciplinary features as well as factual information the beginner must follow theoretical developments, develop imagination in visualizing physical phenomena, and be forced to think his way through problems of theory and application. The text attempts to attain these objectives in the following ways omission of subsidiary conclusions is designed to encourage the student to come to some conclusions by himself application of bare principles to specific problems should develop ingenuity illustrative problems are included to assist in overcoming numerical difficulties and many numerical problems for vi PREFACE the student to solve are intended not only to develop ingenuity but to show practical applications as well. Presentation of the subject begins with a discussion of fundamentals, physical properties and fluid statics. Frictionless flow is then discussed to bring out the applications of the principles of conservation of mass and energy, and of impulse-momentum law, to fluid motion. The principles of similarity and dimensional analysis are next taken up so that these principles may be used as tools in later developments. Frictional processes are discussed in a semi-quantitative fashion, and the text proceeds to pipe and open-channel flow. A chapter is devoted to the principles and apparatus for fluid measurements, and the text ends with an elementary treatment of flow about immersed objects...


Visualized Flow: Fluid motion in basic and engineering situations revealed by flow visualization (Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers)

Visualized Flow: Fluid motion in basic and engineering situations revealed by flow visualization (Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics for Mechanical Engineers) Lowest new price: $75.00
Lowest used price: $92.86
List price: $44.00

Flow Visualization always plays an important role in understanding flow phenomena and contributes significantly to the physical intuitive reasonong necessary to successfully apply the knowledge gained to real life situations. This book is designed to enhance the understanding of basic flow phenomena through over 200 high quality flow visualization photographs, some in colour, and explanations. The book opens with a summary of flow visualization methods, and then proceeds to present flow phenomena as revealed by various flow visualization techniques. The treatment ranges from fundamental aspects, such as laminar and turbulent flow, to engineering applications; for example, understanding why cavitation damage occurred on the runner of a Francis turbine. Current and new visualization techniques are employed such that invisible flow, as in air and water, is made clearly visible and comprehensible. Visualized Flow was compiled and edited under the guidance of the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers. This English edition will be indispensable to engineers, researchers and students in understanding flow phenomena across the wide range of sciences wherever fluid flow is important.

Introduction to Fluid Mechanics provides a balanced and uniquely visual treatment of the tools used in solving modern fluid mechanics problems. Presenting an image-intensive approach to fluid dynamics through classic kinematic concepts, the book demonstrates the importance of flow visualization in a framework of modern experimental techniques and flow simulation.

Detailed photographs and diagrams of fluid motions and phenomena throughout the text help students to see and understand why equations change drastically for different types of flows. Output illustrations from CFD (computational fluid dynamics) programs illustrate the possibilities of flow behavior, enabling students to concentrate on ideas instead of mathematics. The book also provides the means to solve interesting problems early in the course by presenting case studies at the beginning of the text. These cases are revisited later to reinforce empirical rules and help explain advanced methods of analyzing a flow.

Creating a foundation for further study in this important and exciting field, Introduction to Fluid Mechanics is ideal for a first course in fluid mechanics. The book is designed to accommodate students concentrating in mechanical engineering as well as those in the civil, aerospace, and chemical engineering fields.
