This text is intended to fulfil two purposes: to provide an important supplement to classic texts by carrying fluid dynamics students on into the realm of free boundary flows; and to demonstrate the art of mathematical modelling based on knowledge, intuition, and observation. In the author's words, the overall goal is to "make the complex simple, without losing the essence - the virtue - of the complexity". This volume covers the topics of: axisymmetric laminar flows; free-boundary flows; and dynamics of drops, jets, and films. The text also features comparisons of models to experiments, and it includes a large selection of problems at the end of each chapter.
