This book presents those essentials. We have included a derivation of the Navier-Stokes equations with several solved flows. It is not necessary, however, to include them if the elemental approach is selected. Either method can be used to study laminar flow in pipes, channels, between rotating cylinders, and in laminar boundary layer flow.
The basic principles upon which a study of fluid mechanics is based are illustrated with numerous examples and practice exams that allow students to develop their problem-solving skills. The solutions to all problems in the practice exams are included at the end of the book.
Examples and problems are presented using SI metric units. The practice exams at the end of each chapter contain four-part, multiple-choice problems similar to those found on national exams, such as the Fundamentals of Engineering exam the first of two exams required in the engineering registration process or the Graduate Record Exam required when applying for most graduate schools. There are also partial-credit practice exams at the end of each chapter.
Engineering courses do not, in general, utilize multiple-choice exams but it is quite important that students gain experience in taking such exams. This book allows that experience, if desired.
The mathematics required is that of other engineering courses except that if the study of the Navier-Stokes equations is selected then partial differential equations are encountered. Some vector relations are used but not at a level beyond most engineering curricula. If you have comments, suggestions, or corrections or simply want to opine, please email me at MerleCP sbcglobal.

Fluid mechanics is encountered in almost every area of our physical lives. Blood fl ows through our veins and arteries, a ship moves through water, airplanes fl y in the air, air fl ows around wind machines, air is compressed in a compressor, steam fl ows around turbine blades, a dam holds back water, air is heated and cooled in our homes, and computers require air to cool components. All engineering disciplines require some expertise in the area of fl uid mechanics. In this book we will solve problems involving relatively simple geometries, such as fl ow through a pipe or a channel, and fl ow around spheres and cylinders.
But fi rst, we will begin by making calculations in fl uids at rest, the subject of fl uid statics.
The math required to solve the problems included in this book is primarily calculus, but some differential equations will be solved. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg.
By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor. So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion.
A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place. Avoid series that cross authors, unless the authors were or became aware of the series identification eg. Also avoid publisher series, unless the publisher has a true monopoly over the "works" in question.
So, the Dummies guides are a series of works. But the Loeb Classical Library is a series of editions, not of works. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.
