Author: A. J. Baker
The finite-element method was originally developed by engineers in the 1950s to analyze large structural systems for aircraft. Aimed at advanced level undergraduates of engineering and fluid mechanics and researchers, engineers and scientists in fluid mechanics, mechanical and chemical engineering, this text derives, develops and applies finite-element solution methodology directly to the differential equation systems governing distinct and practical problem classes in fluid mechanics. It is principally a text on fluid mechanics and the theory of its computational simulation, for those with a basic interest in fluid mechanics.

Connecting the math and theory of fluid mechanics to practical applications can be a difficult process. Engineering Fluid Mechanics builds on the success of previous editions to help engineers learn how to apply concepts by keeping them engaged and active throughout the book. Simple and effective examples show how key equations are utilized in practice, and step-by-step descriptions provide details into the processes that engineers follow. Each chapter also outlines the three most important things they will be able to accomplish once the concepts are learned. With its physical/visual approach, engineers will quickly gain an intuitive understanding of the principles.

Cengel and Cimbala's Fluid Mechanics Fundamentals and Applications, communicates directly with tomorrow's engineers in a simple yet precise manner. The text covers the basic principles and equations of fluid mechanics in the context of numerous and diverse real-world engineering examples. The text helps students develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics by emphasizing the physics, using figures, numerous photographs and visual aids to reinforce the physics. The highly visual approach enhances the learning of Fluid mechanics by students. This text distinguishes itself from others by the way the material is presented - in a progressive order from simple to more difficult, building each chapter upon foundations laid down in previous chapters. In this way, even the traditionally challenging aspects of fluid mechanics can be learned effectively.
McGraw-Hill Education's Connect, is also available as an optional, add on item. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, how they need it, so that class time is more effective. Connect allows the professor to assign homework, quizzes, and tests easily and automatically grades and records the scores of the student's work. Problems are randomized to prevent sharing of answers an may also have a "multi-step solution" which helps move the students' learning along if they experience difficulty.

Brand: Brand: PWS Kent Publishers
Both a landmark text and reference book, Steven Vogel's Life in Moving Fluids has also played a catalytic role in research involving the applications of fluid mechanics to biology. In this revised edition, Vogel continues to combine humor and clear explanations as he addresses biologists and general readers interested in biological fluid mechanics, offering updates on the field over the last dozen years and expanding the coverage of the biological literature. His discussion of the relationship between fluid flow and biological design now includes sections on jet propulsion, biological pumps, swimming, blood flow, and surface waves, and on acceleration reaction and Murray's law. This edition contains an extensive bibliography for readers interested in designing their own experiments.

Designed for the fluid mechanics course for mechanical, civil, and aerospace engineering students, or as a reference for professional engineers, this up to date text uses computer algorithms and applications to solve modern problems related to fluid flow, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. Algorithms and codes for numerical solutions of fluid problems, which can be implemented in programming environments such as MATLAB, are used throughout the book. The author also uses non-language specific algorithms to force the students to think through the logic of the solution technique as they translate the algorithm into the software they are using. The text also includes an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics, a well-established method in the design of fluid machinery and heat transfer applications. A DVD accompanies every new printed copy of the book and contains the source code, MATLAB files, third-party simulations, color figures, and more.

|Laser Metrology in Fluid Mechanics: Granulometry, Temperature and Concentration Measurements (Waves)
Lowest new price: $101.33
Lowest used price: $95.00
List price: $187.00
Author: Alain Boutier
In fluid mechanics, non-intrusive measurements are fundamental in order to improve knowledge of the behavior and main physical phenomena of flows in order to further validate codes.
The principles and characteristics of the different techniques available in laser metrology are described in detail in this book.
Velocity, temperature and concentration measurements by spectroscopic techniques based on light scattered by molecules are achieved by different techniques: laser-induced fluorescence, coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering using lasers and parametric sources, and absorption spectroscopy by tunable laser diodes, which are generally better suited for high velocity flows. The size determination of particles by optical means, a technique mainly applied in two-phase flows, is the subject of another chapter, along with a description of the principles of light scattering.
For each technique the basic principles are given, as well as optical devices and data processing. A final chapter reminds the reader of the main safety precautions to be taken when using powerful lasers.
