This is a modern and elegant introduction to engineering fluid mechanics enriched with numerous examples, exercises and applications. A swollen creek tumbles over rocks and through crevasses, swirling and foaming. Taffy can be stretched, reshaped and twisted in various ways. Both the water and the taffy are fluids and their motions are governed by the laws of nature. The aim of this textbook is to introduce the reader to the analysis of flows using the laws of physics and the language of mathematics. We delve deeply into the mathematical analysis of flows; knowledge of the patterns fluids form and why they are formed and also the stresses fluids generate and why they are generated is essential to designing and optimising modern systems and devices. Inventions such as helicopters and lab-on-a-chip reactors would never have been designed without the insight provided by mathematical models.

Fluid mechanics is a core component of many undergraduate engineering courses. It is essential for both students and lecturers to have a comprehensive, highly illustrated textbook, full of exercises, problems and practical applications to guide them through their study and teaching. Engineering Fluid Mechanics By William P. Grabel is that book The ISE version of this comprehensive text is especially priced for the student market and is an essential textbook for undergraduates (particularly those on mechanical and civil engineering courses) designed to emphasis the physical aspects of fluid mechanics and to develop the analytical skills and attitudes of the engineering student. Example problems follow most of the theory to ensure that students easily grasp the calculations, step by step processes outline the procedure used, so as to improve the students' problem solving skills. An Appendix is included to present some of the more general considerations involved in the design process. The author also links fluid mechanics to other core engineering courses an undergraduate must take (heat transfer, thermodynamics, mechanics of materials, statistics and dynamics) wherever possible, to build on previously learned knowledge.

Fluid Mechanics is the branch of physics concerned with the mechanics of fluids and forces acting on them. It includes unlimited practical applications ranging from microscopic biological systems to automobiles, airplanes and spacecraft propulsion. Fluid Mechanics is the study of fluid behavior at rest and in motion. It also gives information about devices used to measure flow rate, pressure and velocity of fluid. The book uses plain, Lucid language to explain fundamentals of this subject. The book provides logical method of explaining various complicated concepts and stepwise methods to explain the important topics. Each chapter is well supported with necessary illustrations, practical examples and solved problems. All the chapters in the book are arranged in a proper sequence that permits each topic to build upon earlier studies. All care has been taken to make readers comfortable in understanding the basic concepts of the subject.

Despite dramatic advances in numerical and experimental methods of fluid mechanics, the fundamentals are still the starting point for solving flow problems. This textbook introduces the major branches of fluid mechanics of incompressible and compressible media, the basic laws governing their flow, and gasdynamics. "Fluid Mechanics" demonstrates how flows can be classified and how specific engineering problems can be identified, formulated and solved, using the methods of applied mathematics. The material is elaborated in special applications sections by more than 200 exercises and separately listed solutions. The final section comprises the Aerodynamics Laboratory, an introduction to experimental methods treating eleven flow experiments. This class-tested textbook offers a unique combination of introduction to the major fundamentals, many exercises, and a detailed description of experiments.

Dimensional analysis is the basis for the determination of laws that allow the experimental results obtained on a model to be transposed to the fluid system at full scale (a prototype). The similarity in fluid mechanics then allows for better redefinition of the analysis by removing dimensionless elements. This book deals with these two tools, with a focus on the Rayleigh method and the Vaschy-Buckingham method. It deals with the homogeneity of the equations and the conversion between the systems of units SI and CGS, and presents the dimensional analysis approach, before addressing the similarity of flows. Dimensional Analysis and Similarity in Fluid Mechanics proposes a scale model and presents numerous exercises combining these two methods. It is accessible to students from their first year of a bachelors degree.
