About this book

This first volume discusses fluid mechanical concepts and their applications to ideal and viscous processes. It describes the fundamental hydrostatics and hydrodynamics, and includes an almanac of flow problems for ideal fluids. The book presents numerous exact solutions of flows in simple configurations, each of which is constructed and graphically supported. It addresses ideal, potential, Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids. Simple, yet precise solutions to special flows are also constructed, namely Blasius boundary layer flows, matched asymptotics of the Navier-Stokes equations, global laws of steady and unsteady boundary layer flows and laminar and turbulent pipe flows. Moreover, the well-established logarithmic velocity profile is criticised.

Reviews

“The authors show the richness of fluid mechanics by articulating topics with mathematical exactitude and approachable style. … is highly recommended for the bookshelf of every fluid mechanician, physicist, and applied mathematician. The book could also be appropriate as a possible technical elective for upper-class students in engineering, physics, and applied mathematics, or first-year graduate students. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above; faculty and professionals.” (R. N. Laoulache, Choice, Vol. 54 (10), June, 2017)

“This book is exemplary presented and fills an important gap in the literature, as it has been written specifically for students to acquire the basic knowledge of fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, with particular attention to the topic of boundary layer theory, which is very topcial at present. … the book delivers an excellent account of what I believe is an appropriate collection of subjects in very topical areas.” (Ioan Pop, zbMATH 1352.76002, 2017)
