"This textbook for graduate students and researchers discusses the elementary microscopic basis of the statistical theory of fluids as well as the classical aspects of deformation and pressure and the various conservation laws. A sampling of topics includes the diffusion of momentum under various flow conditions, the kinematics of fluids, potential flow, dynamics of vortices, laminar boundary layers, and hydrodynamic instabilities. Coverage extends to an examination of the properties of superfluid helium."--SciTech Book News"The main advantage of Physical Hydronamics however, is that the book aims at providing a more physical understanding that underlies the mathematics. ... In short, the book gives a thorough and original coverage of fluid mechanics, in dealing with vortices and hydrodynamic instabilities it even goes beyond many of the other available textbooks."--Applied Rheology"This is a book that should find a place in offices and cubicles whose occupants believe in the need for understanding its inventory of concepts from fluid mechanics."--Applied Mechanics ReviewFrom the Publisher:
In the course of the last twenty years, teaching and research in fluid mechanics has expanded considerably into the physics and chemistry communities, who in their turn developed new approaches to the teaching of this topic. These approaches are mainly oriented towards the comprehension of fluids of different hierarchies, the development of various experimental tools, and explanations in terms of elementary physical mechanics. Physical Hydrodynamics presents this original approach for the first time. The elementary microscopic basics of the statistical theory of fluids is discussed, as are the classical aspects of deformation and pressure and the laws of conservation. The problem of Low-Reynolds-Number Flows will be addressed, its applications to suspensions and porous media explained. A discussion of the aspects of boundary layers, high-velocity flows and instabilities conclude this presentation of incompressible fluid hydrodynamics. The present book provides a thorough introduction into the topic from a primarily physical point of view and will be a useful textbook and reference work for graduate students, lecturers and researchers.
