About the book
Engineering Fluid Mechanics, in addition to the basic chapters like applications of Bernoulli’s equation, momentum theorem, turbomachines and dimensional analysis, discusses mechanics of laminar and turbulent flows, boundary layers, incompressible inviscid flows, compressible flows and computational fluid dynamics. Introduction to wave hydrodynamics, experimental techniques and analysis of experimental uncertainty are also presented in addition to the role of fluid mechanics in engineering design.
Applications from different engineering disciplines • Numerous solved examples and problems to be solved • Helps Students understand and analyze practical problems
