About the Authors
  • Fluid mechanics is the study of fluids including liquids, gases and plasmas and the forces acting on them. Its study is critical in predicting rainfall, ocean currents, reducing drag on cars and aeroplanes, and design of engines. The subject is also interesting from a mathematical perspective due to the nonlinear nature of its equations. For example, the topic of turbulence has been a subject of interest to both mathematicians and engineers: to the former because of its mathematically complex nature and to the latter group because of its ubiquitous presence in real-life applications. This book is a follow-up to the first volume and discusses the concepts of fluid mechanics in detail. The book gives an in-depth summary of the governing equations and their engineering related applications. It also comprehensively discusses the fundamental theories related to kinematics and governing equations, hydrostatics, surface waves and ideal fluid flow, followed by their applications.

    • Detailed summary of the most general form of the governing equations and shows how various approximations are made to solve problems of engineering interest
    • Uses numerical/analytical solutions of the gas dynamic equations instead of the classical method of using Gas Tables
    • Presents a large number of applications including poiseuille flow through the annular region and wind driven ocean currents
