Description

A deeply enriched second edition of a classical textbook on fluid dynamics. It emphasizes an experimental (inductive) approach rather than the more formal approach found in many textbooks in the field.

  • Deeply enriched edition of a classical textbook on fluid dynamics
  • Links macroscopic and microscopic transport phenomena
  • Experiments on fluids are presented in detail
  • Simple presentation of mechanisms of flow processes and instabilities
  • Richly illustrated, including colour images
  • Includes exercises at chapter ends and solutions at the end of the book

New to this edition

  • Two new chapters on quasi parallel flows and on turbulence
  • Representative examples from other experimental sciences: materials, environmental, life, and earth sciences, as well as the engineering sciences
  • Illustrations have been completely revisited and widely improved, with an inset of colour photographs
  • Exercises have been added at the end of a number of chapters

About the Author(s)

Etienne Guyon, ESPCI, Jean-Pierre Hulin, Laboratoire FAST, Luc Petit, Université Claude Bernard-Lyon 1, and Catalin D. Mitescu, Pomona College, Claremont, California

Etienne Guyon is physicist at the PMMH Laboratory (Physics and Mechanics of Heterogeneous Media) of ESPCI (Ecole Supérieure de Physique et Chimie Industrielles, Paris) and former director of Ecole Normale Supérieure in Paris. His interests deal with the flow properties disordered matter and with the diffusion of science. He is a fellow of AIP and APS.

Jean-Pierre Hulin is scientist at the FAST Laboratory (Fluids, Automatics and Thermal Systems) in Paris South University. His research deals with flow and transport in fractured and porous media, with granular and suspension flows and with mixing. He has taught fluid mechanics in several engineering (ESPCI, ENSTA) and graduate schools. He is a fellow of APS.

Luc Petit is Professor at the Institute of Light and Matter of the Lyon 1 University. His research deals with the flow of complex fluids. He has thaught fluid mechanics at undergraduate and graduate level (Ecole Normale Supérieure in Lyon, University of Nice, Université of Lyon) and he is involved in the formation of teachers.
