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.

This text on intermediate fluids is aimed at the civil, agricultural and oceanography markets. It gives a grounding in fluid mechanics, including systematic and parallel development of the equations of fluid mechanics in integral and differential form. There is also extensive coverage of free surface flow. The book's applications are directed at shallow-water hydraulics, oceanography and wave mechanics, circulation in large bodies of water and transport. Examples, problems and historical notes are also included.

This book presents the physics of incompressible flow for the benefit of students and others who need to understand fluid motion. In this new edition, much of the material is new or rewritten, but the purpose and style of the first edition are retained. Particular emphasis is given to information obtained by experiment and observation in addition to analysis of the equations of motion. The book's primary concern is to convey a fundamental understanding of the behavior of fluids in motion. Special features include an introductory non-mathematical treatment of three particular flow configurations; extensive consideration of geophysical topics; and detailed coverage of topics that are known primarily through experimental data. Numerous photographs illustrate the phenomena discussed, and a concluding chapter demonstrates the wide applicability of fluid mechanics. New topics in the second edition include double diffusive convection and modern ideas about dynamical chaos. The discussion of instabilities has been restructured and the treatments of separation and of convection in horizontal layers considerably expanded.

"The mixture of prose, mathematics, and beautiful illustrations is particularly well chosen." — American Scientist
This monumental text by a noted authority in the field is specially designed to provide an orderly structured introduction to fluid mechanics, a field all too often seen by students as an amorphous mass of disparate equations instead of the coherent body of theory and application it should be. In addition, the book will help upgrade students' mathematical skills as they learn the fundamentals of fluid mechanics.
The text presents a unified method of analysis that poses fluid mechanics problems in precise mathematical language without becoming stiff or unnecessarily rigorous. This method involves three steps: First, the text carefully defines each problem so the student knows what is given and what is missing. Second, each chapter treats the physical aspects of the problems so the student can visualize how things work in the real world. Third, the text represents the physical model by appropriate mathematical symbols and operators, collects these into equations, and then solves them. The result is a superb learning and teaching process that covers everything the engineer needs to know — nature of fluids, hydrostatics, differential and integral equations, dimensional analysis, viscous flows, and other topics — while allowing students to see each element in its relation to the whole.
Each chapter contains numerous examples incorporating problem-solving techniques, demonstrations to illustrate topical material, study questions, boxed equations of significant results, appropriate references to supplementary materials and other study aids. Over 760 illustrations enhance the text. This volume will be an indispensable reference and resource for any student of fluid mechanics or practicing engineer.

This book presents a new method of asymptotic analysis of boundary-layer problems, the Successive Complementary Expansion Method (SCEM). The first part is devoted to a general presentation of the tools of asymptotic analysis. It gives the keys to understand a boundary-layer problem and explains the methods to construct an approximation. The second part is devoted to SCEM and its applications in fluid mechanics, including external and internal flows.
