Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Edition uses equations to model phenomena that we see and interact with every day. Placing emphasis on solved practical problems, this book introduces circumstances that are likely to occur in practice—reflecting real-life situations that involve fluids in motion. It examines the equations of motion for turbulent flow, the flow of a nonviscous or inviscid fluid, and laminar and turbulent boundary-layer flows. The new edition contains new sections on experimental methods in fluids, presents new and revised examples and chapter problems, and includes problems utilizing computer software and spreadsheets in each chapter. The book begins with the fundamentals, addressing fluid statics and describing the forces present in fluids at rest. It examines the forces that are exerted on a body moving through a fluid, describes the effects that cause lift and drag forces to be exerted on immersed bodies, and examines the variables that are used to mathematically model open-channel flow. It discusses the behavior of fluids while they are flowing, covers the basic concepts of compressible flow (flowing gases), and explains the application of the basic concepts of incompressible flow in conduits. This book presents the control volume concept; the continuity, momentum, energy, and Bernoulli equations; and the Rayleigh, Buckingham pi, and inspection methods. It also provides friction factor equations for the Moody diagram, and includes correlations for coiled and internally finned tubes. In addition, the author: Concludes each chapter with a problems section Groups the end-of-chapter problems together by topic Arranges problems so that the easier ones are presented first Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Edition offers a basic analysis of fluid mechanics designed for a first course in fluids. This latest edition adds coverage of experimental methods in fluid mechanics, and contains new and updated examples that can aid in understanding and applying the equations of fluid mechanics to common, everyday problems.

This text is intended for the study of fluid mechanics at an intermediate level. The presentation starts with basic concepts, in order to form a sound conceptual structure that can support engineering applications and encourage further learning. The presentation is exact, incorporating both the mathematics involved and the physics needed to understand the various phenomena in fluid mechanics. Where a didactical choice must be made between the two, the physics prevails. Throughout the book the authors have tried to reach a balance between exact presentation, intuitive grasp of new ideas, and creative applications of concepts. This approach is reflected in the examples presented in the text and in the exercises given at the end of each chapter. Subjects treated are hydrostatics, viscous flow, similitude and order of magnitude, creeping flow, potential flow, boundary layer flow, turbulent flow, compressible flow, and non-Newtonian flows. This book is ideal for advanced undergraduate students in mechanical, chemical, aerospace, and civil engineering. Solutions manual available.

Introduction to Fluid Mechanics is a mathematically efficient introductory text for a basal course in mechanical engineering. More rigorous than existing texts in the field, it is also distinguished 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. Beginning with the simple and proceeding to the complex, the text introduces the principles of fluid mechanics in orderly steps. At each stage practical engineering problems are solved, principally in engineering systems such as dams, pumps, turbines, pipe flows, propellers, and jets, but with occasional illustrations from physiological and meteorological flows. The approach builds on the student's experience with everyday fluid mechanics, showing how the scientific principles permit a quantitative understanding of what is happening and provide a basis for designing engineering systems that achieve the desired objectives. Introduction to Fluid Mechanics differs from most engineering texts in several respects: The derivations of the fluid principles (especially the conservation of energy) are complete and correct, but concisely given through use of the theorems of vector calculus. This saves considerable time and enables the student to visualize the significance of these principles. More attention than usual is given to unsteady flows and their importance in pipe flow and external flows. Finally, the examples and exercises illustrate real engineering situations, including physically realistic values of the problem variables. Many of these problems requirecalculation of numerical values, giving the student experience in judging the correctness of his or her numerical skills.

Introductory Biomechanics is a new, integrated text written specifically for engineering students. It provides a broad overview of this important branch of the rapidly growing field of bioengineering. A wide selection of topics is presented, ranging from the mechanics of single cells to the dynamics of human movement. No prior biological knowledge is assumed and in each chapter, the relevant anatomy and physiology are first described. The biological system is then analyzed from a mechanical viewpoint by reducing it to its essential elements, using the laws of mechanics and then tying mechanical insights back to biological function. This integrated approach provides students with a deeper understanding of both the mechanics and the biology than from qualitative study alone. The text is supported by a wealth of illustrations, tables and examples, a large selection of suitable problems and hundreds of current references, making it an essential textbook for any biomechanics course.

An Introduction to Compressible Flow is a concise, yet comprehensive treatment of one_dimensional compressible flow designed to provide mechanical and aerospace engineering students with the background they need for aerodynamics and turbomachinery courses. This book covers isentropic flow, normal shock waves, oblique shock waves, and Prandtl_Meyer flow and their applications. The first chapter reviews the physics of air, control volume analysis and provides a review of thermodynamics. Most textbooks provide very concise treatments of compressible flow- this text will supplement that material, which is often too concise to provide students with the background they need. This book also supports practicing engineers who have never developed a mastery of issues related to one_dimensional compressible flow or who need to review this material at some point in their careers. The appendices provide the tables and charts commonly associated with this material. One new addition is an oblique shock table, which tabulates the oblique shock angle for the weak shock solution as a function of Mach number and deflection angle. The book includes examples of problem solutions, and each chapter has a list of problems to enable students to apply their understanding.
