Introduction to Engineering Fluid Mechanics


Marcel Escudier

November 2017

Fluid mechanics concerns the way fluids flow in response to imposed stresses. This textbook includes numerous examples of practical applications of the theoretical ideas, such as calculations of the thrust of a jet engine, the power output of a gas turbine and forces created by liquid flow through a pipe bend or junction.

Computer Simulation of Liquids

Second Edition


Michael P. Allen, Dominic J. Tildesley

June 2017

This is the second edition of a widely used practical guide to computer simulations of liquids. The technique uses a model for the way molecules interact, to predict how large numbers of them behave in liquid state. This essential introduction to this rapidly growing field is complete with illustrative computer code.

Soft Matter Physics


Masao Doi

July 2013

Soft matter (polymers, colloids, surfactants, liquid crystals) are an important class of materials for modern and future technologies. They are complex materials that behave neither like a fluid nor a solid. This book describes the characteristics of such materials and how we can understand such characteristics in the language of physics.
