A clear and concise introduction to the physics of low speed fluid mechanics, emphasising fundamental concepts and methods.
This book is designed as a one semester coursebook providing a sound foundation in continuum mechanics. The choice and treatment of topics provides a fresh approach aimed at making the more abstruse aspects of the subjects more accessible to students, and easier to teach. Mathematical difficulty progresses through the book with only a basic knowledge of differential calculus assumed at the outset. Where appropriate an alternative, more advanced, treatment has been provided.
Plenty of illustrations and worked examples are used to clarify each new concept, and exercises are provided at the end of each chapter to test the student's knowledge and understanding, and assist in the development of problem-solving skills.
The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with new material on geostrophic flow and the instability of stratified flow.
Mechanical properties of fluids; thermodynamic properties of fluids; dimensional analysis; fluid statics; fluid kinematics; conservation of mass; frictionless momentum equations - Euler and Bernoulli; one dimensional flow and energy conservation; motion with rotation; velocity potential, stream function and solution by superstition; forces on a body submerged in a moving fluid; control volume applications; viscous fluids, boundary layers and turbulence. Appendices: some vector calculus identities; answers to selected exercies.
