Fluid Mechanics: Course of Theoretical Physics, Volume 6

£50.00

Product description

This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds up from the fundamentals, often in a general way, to widespread applications, to technology and geophysics.

New to this second edition are discussions on the universal dimensions similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations and on the generalised vector field derivatives. In addition, new material on the generalised stream function treatment shows how stream function may be used in three-dimensional flows. Finally, a new Computational Fluid Dynamics chapter enables computations of some simple flows and provides entry to more advanced literature.

* Basic introduction to the subject of fluid mechanics, intended for undergraduate and beginning graduate students of science and engineering.

* Includes topics of special interest for geophysicists and to engineers.

* New and generalised treatment of similar laminar boundary layers, stream functions for three-dimensional flows, vector field derivatives, and gas dynamics. Also a new generalised treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics, and expanded treatment of viscous fluids.
