By: Çengel, Yunus A.
Contributor(s): Cimbala, John M.
Material type: TextTextPublisher: New York : McGraw-Hill Education, 2018Edition: 4th ed.Description: xxi, 1024 p. : ill. ; 26 cm.ISBN: 9781259696534; 1259696537.Subject(s): Fluid dynamicsDDC classification: 620.106 Online resources: WorldCat Details | Click here to access online
Contents:
Table of contents Introduction and basic concepts -- Properties of fluids -- Pressure and fluid statics -- Fluid kinematics -- Bernoulli and energy equations -- Momentum analysis of flow systems -- Dimensional analysis and modeling -- Internal flow -- Differential analysis of fluid flow -- Approximate solutions of the Navier/Stokes equation -- External flow: drag and lift -- Compressible flow -- Open-channel flow -- Turbomachinery -- Introduction to computational fluid dynamics.
Summary: "Fluid mechanics is an exciting and fascinating subject with unlimited practical applications ranging from microscopic biological systems to automobiles, airplanes, and spacecraft propulsion. Fluid mechanics has also historically been one of the most challenging subjects for undergraduate students because proper analysis of fluid mechanics problems requires not only knowledge of the concepts but also physical intuition and experience. Our hope is that this book, through its careful explanations of concepts and its use of numerous practical examples, sketches, figures, and photographs, bridges the gap between knowledge and the proper application of that knowledge"--
