Summary: Examines some fundamental aspects of fluid motion, including important fluid properties, regimes of flow, pressure variations in fluids at rest and in motion, fluid kinematics, and methods of flow description and analysis. Expands on the basic analysis methods generally used to solve or to begin solving fluid mechanics problems. Concludes with additional important notions such as boundary layers, transition from laminar to turbulent flow, turbulence modeling and chaos and flow sepa ...show moreration. Presents 165 examples that provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. Also included are a generous set of homework problems in each chapter stresses the practical application of principles, and several open - ended problems which require critical thinking in order to work them one must make various assumptions and provide the necessary data. ...show lessEdition/Copyright: 3RD 98
