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.

Description

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.

  • Emphasizes understanding of the underlying physical principles
  • Numerous practical examples with calculations, such as the shock- and expansion-wave patterns for supersonic flow over a diamond-shaped aerofoil
  • Progressive development of subject matter
  • Chronologically ordered bibliography shows evolution of the subject from antiquity to present day
  • Plenty of tutorial material, figures, examples, self-assessment problems

About the Author(s)

Marcel Escudier, Emeritus Harrison Professor of Mechanical Engineering, University of Liverpool

Marcel Escudier is Emeritus Harrison Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Liverpool. From 1974 until 1986 he was Gruppenleiter für Strömungsmechanik at the Brown, Boveri Research Centre in Switzerland and then joined Schlumberger Cambridge Research in the UK as Head of the Fluid Mechanics Department. He has published research papers (about 60 in total) on turbulent boundary layers, burning plumes, vortex breakdown, and the flow of non-Newtonian liquids. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2000.
