A step-by-step guide, containing tutorial examples that serve as models for all concepts presented. This text contains properties of nearly 50 fluids, including density and viscosity data for compressed water and superheated steam, and characteristics of areas, pipes and tubing.
Table of Contents
Basic definitions; fluid statics; fluid kinematics; fluid dynamics and energy relations; gas dynamics; dimensionless parameters. Appendices: fluid properties; dimensions, unit systems and conversion factors; properties of areas, pipes and tubing.
"With characteristics of a handbook and a textbook, this book should be useful for either reference or review. . ..topics can be readily accessed without the need for a sequential reading of the text. . . .develop[s] fluid mechanics from basic principles and without mathematical complexity. "
