Introduction to fluid mechanics

By: Nakayama, Yasuki.
Publisher: Oxford Elsevier 2018Edition: 2nd ed.Description: xvi, 383p.ISBN: 9780081024379.Subject(s): Continuum mechanicsDDC classification: 620.106 | N145i2 Summary: Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, Second Edition, uses clear images and animations of flow patterns to help readers grasp the fundamental rules of fluid behavior. Everyday examples are provided for practical context, before tackling the more involved mathematic techniques that form the basis for computational fluid mechanics. This fully updated and expanded edition builds on the author’s flair for flow visualization with new content. With basic introductions to all essential fluids theory, and exercises to test your progress, this is the ideal introduction to fluids for anyone involved in mechanical, civil, chemical, or biomedical engineering. Provides illustrations and animations to demonstrate fluid behavior Includes examples and exercises drawn from a range of engineering fields Explains a range of computerized and traditional methods for flow visualization, and how to choose the correct one Features a fully reworked section on computational fluid dynamics based on discretization methods
