9780131292932: Fluid Mechanics

Written for courses in Fluid Mechanics in Civil and Mechanical Engineering, this text covers the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics, as well as specialist topics in more depth. The fundamental material relates to all engineering disciplines that require fluid mechanics.

As in previous editions this book demonstrates the link between theory and practice with excellent examples and computer programs. The programs help students perform 3 types of calculations; relatively simple calculations, calculations designed to provide solutions for steady state system operation, and unsteady flow simulations.

Product Description:

Provides a comprehensive treatment of fluid mechanics that is supported by worked examples. This text presents relevant material for mechanical and civil engineers, as well as energy and environmental services engineers. It recognises the evolution of the subject and provides coverage of both established theory and emerging topics.

From the Back Cover:

The fifth edition of this established text provides an excellent and comprehensive treatment of fluid mechanics that is concisely written and supported by good worked examples.

This revision of a classic text presents relevant material for mechanical and civil engineers, as well as energy and environmental services engineers. It recognises the evolution of the subject and provides thorough coverage of both established theory and emerging topics.

Fluid Mechanics has become a textbook of choice favourite with both students and lecturers, due to its:

Excellent coverage

  • All the latest developments and applications, including emerging specialisms
  • Strong coverage of the principles of fluid flow - fundamentals emphasized early in the text

Emphasis on understanding

  • Good, clear explanations, together with extensive worked examples and tutorials – brought together to reinforce the reader’s understanding of all the key principles
Helpful resources on accompanying website

  • With solutions to tutorials, and simulations of fluid mechanics, presented through some 20 programs, all fully discussed in the text

Building on the success of previous editions, this fifth edition introduces the following new features:

  • New chapters on the impact of environmental change and the fluid mechanics required to both understand the consequences of climate change and develop  renewable energy technologies
  • Updated chapter on dimensional analysis
  • Updated solutions manual
  • Extended website to include enhanced and additional simulations

  Fluid Mechanics is ideal for use throughout a first degree course in all engineering disciplines where a good understanding of the subject is required.  It is also suitable for conversion MSc courses requiring a fundamental treatment of Fluid Mechanics and will be a valuable resource for specialist Continuing Professional Development courses, including those offered by Distance Learning.

Authors

Dr John Douglas, formerly of South Bank University, London.

Dr Janusz Gasiorek, formerly of South Bank University, London where he led the Fluid Mechanics group in Mechanical Engineering, with specialist research interest in rotodynamic machinery and fan engineering.

Professor John Swaffield, Heriot–Watt University, has taught fluid mechanics for 30 years with specialist research in pressure transients, free surface unsteady flows and water conservation.

Dr Lynne Jack, Heriot-Watt University, senior lecturer in energy systems and associated environmental impacts, with research interests in unsteady flow modelling and the implications for the built environment of climate change.
