Fluid Dynamics via Examples and Solutions provides a substantial set of example problems and detailed model solutions covering various phenomena and effects in fluids. The book is ideal as a supplement or exam review for undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid dynamics, continuum mechanics, turbulence, ocean and atmospheric sciences, and related areas. It is also suitable as a main text for fluid dynamics courses with an emphasis on learning by example and as a self-study resource for practicing scientists who need to learn the basics of fluid dynamics. The author covers several sub-areas of fluid dynamics, types of flows, and applications. He also includes supplementary theoretical material when necessary. Each chapter presents the background, an extended list of references for further reading, numerous problems, and a complete set of model solutions.

The multidisciplinary field of fluid mechanics is one of the most actively developing fields of physics, mathematics and engineering. This textbook, fully revised and enlarged for the second edition, presents the minimum of what every physicist, engineer and mathematician needs to know about hydrodynamics. It includes new illustrations throughout, using examples from everyday life, from hydraulic jumps in a kitchen sink to Kelvin–Helmholtz instabilities in clouds, and geophysical and astrophysical phenomena, providing readers with a better understanding of the world around them. Aimed at undergraduate and graduate students as well as researchers, the book assumes no prior knowledge of the subject and only a basic understanding of vector calculus and analysis. It contains forty-one original problems with very detailed solutions, progressing from dimensional estimates and intuitive arguments to detailed computations to help readers understand fluid mechanics.

This volume is intended to help graduate-level students of Continuum Mechanics become more proficient in its applications through the solution of analytical problems. Published as two separate books — Part I on Theory and Problems with Part II providing Solutions to the problems — professors may also find it quite useful in preparing their lectures and examinations. Part I includes a brief theoretical treatment for each of the major areas of Continuum Mechanics (fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, elastic and inelastic solids, electricity, dimensional analysis, and so on), as well as the references for further reading. The bulk of Part II consists of about 1000 solved problems. The book includes bibliographical references and index.

This collection of over 200 detailed worked exercises adds to and complements the textbook "Fluid Mechanics" by the same author, and, at the same time, illustrates the teaching material via examples. The exercises revolve around applying the fundamental concepts of "Fluid Mechanics" to obtain solutions to diverse concrete problems, and, in so doing, the students' skill in the mathematical modelling of practical problems is developed. In addition, 30 challenging questions WITHOUT detailed solutions have been included. While lecturers will find these questions suitable for examinations and tests, students themselves can use them to check their understanding of the subject.

The second edition of Analytical Fluid Dynamics presents an expanded and updated treatment of inviscid and laminar viscous compressible flows from a theoretical viewpoint. It emphasizes basic assumptions, the physical aspects of flow, and the appropriate formulations of the governing equations for subsequent analytical treatment. Topics covered include Basic concepts A novel approach to linking complicated thermodynamics to the equations of motion Shockwave dynamics Calorically imperfect gas flows Supersonic sweep Shock-expansion interference Unsteady, one-dimensional flows First- and second-order boundary-layer theory Particularly noteworthy is a new, general treatment of forces and moments. The one-dimension flow chapter also discusses internal ballistics and the Riemann function method for solving hyperbolic equations. These two chapters, along with those dealing with thermodynamics, sweep, interference, imperfect gas glows, and several of the appendices are new to this edition. Analytical Fluid Dynamics: Second Edition answers the continued need for fluid dynamic books that combine physical insight with careful development of the corresponding mathematics. With his focus on the development of analytical skills for dealing with inviscid and viscous flow, the author achieves this goal and provides a text valuable as a research reference or a graduate-level text.

Increasingly, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques are being used to study and solve complex fluid flow and heat transfer problems. This comprehensive book ranges from elementary concepts for the beginner to state-of-the-art CFD for the practitioner. It begins with CFD preliminaries, in which the basic principles of finite difference (FD), finite element (FE), and finite volume (FV) methods are discussed and illustrated through examples, with step-by-step hand calculations. Then, FD and FE methods respectively are covered, including both historical developments and recent contributions. The next section is devoted to structured and unstructured grids, adaptive methods, computing techniques, and parallel processing. Finally, the author describes a variety of practical applications to problems in turbulence, reacting flows and combustion, acoustics, combined mode radiative heat transfer, multiphase flows, electromagnetic fields, and relativistic astrophysical flows. Students and practitioners - particularly in mechanical, aerospace, chemical, and civil engineering - will use this authoritative text to learn about and apply numerical techniques to the solution of fluid dynamics problems.

Fluid Mechanics and Singular Perturbations: A Collection of Papers by Saul Kaplun focuses on the works and contributions of Saul Kaplun to the studies of fluid mechanics and singular perturbations. The book first discusses the role of coordinate system in boundary-layer theory. Boundary-layer approximations as limits of exact solutions; comparison of different boundary-layer solutions; and comparison with exact solution and choice of optimal are discussed. The text also looks at asymptotic experiment of Navier-Stokes solution for small Reynolds numbers; basic concepts in the theory of singular perturbations and their applications to flow at small Reynolds numbers; and low Reynolds number flow. The book discusses as well a generalization of Poiseuille and Couette flows and nature of solutions of the boundary-layer equations. Numerical solutions and analyses are presented. The text also looks at compatibility condition for boundary layer equation at a point of zero skin friction. Intuitive background; the past-like solution and its principal asymptotic expansions; and class of compatible profiles are discussed. The book is a valuable source of information for readers who want to study fluid mechanics.
