About this Textbook

Advancements of fluid flow measuring techniques and of computational methods have led to new ways to treat laminar and turbulent flows. These methods are extensively used these days in research and engineering practise. This also requires new ways to teach the subject to students at higher educational institutions in an introductory manner. The book provides the knowledge to students in engineering and natural science needed to enter fluid mechanics applications in various fields. Analytical treatments are provided, based on the Navier-Stokes equations. Introductions are also given into numerical and experimental methods applied to flows.

The main benefit the reader will derive from the book is a sound introduction into all aspects of fluid mechanics covering all relevant subfields.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Durst … cover in a modest volume a wide spectrum of topics including incompressible and compressible flows, gas dynamics, heat transfer, numerical solutions, flows of small and large Reynolds numbers, turbulence, and fluid-flow measurements. … the volume will be valuable for graduate students pursuing fluid mechanics research. It provides thorough analytical coverage of a wide range of fluid mechanics topics and offers brief introductions to numerical and experimental topics. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate through professional collections." (R. N. Laoulache, Choice, Vol. 46 (9), May, 2009)

“Based on the German edition from year 2006, the translated English edition was presented in 2008. It contains 21 chapters. … The book gives a comprehensive survey of the large field of fluid dynamics. It is very useful for students in engineering and physics.” (Bernd Platzer, Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Mechanik, Vol. 90 (12), 2010)
