A quick advent to Fluid Mechanics, fifth variation is designed to hide the normal themes in a easy fluid mechanics direction in a streamlined demeanour that meets the training wishes of today?s scholar greater than the dense, encyclopedic demeanour of conventional texts. This method is helping scholars attach the maths and conception to the actual international and functional purposes and follow those connections to fixing difficulties. The textual content lucidly provides uncomplicated research options and addresses sensible issues and functions, similar to pipe circulate, open-channel stream, move dimension, and drag and raise. It deals a robust visible technique with pictures, illustrations, and video clips integrated within the textual content, examples and homework difficulties to stress the sensible program of fluid mechanics ideas

Example text

Although in this text we are primarily using BG and SI units, dynamic viscosity is often expressed in the metric CGS (centimeter-gram-second) system with units of dyneиs/cm2. This combination is called a poise, abbreviated P. In the CGS system, kinematic viscosity has units of cm2/s, and this combination is called a stoke, abbreviated St. F l u i d s i n An extremely viscous fluid Pitch is a derivative of tar once used for waterproofing boats. At elevated temperatures it flows quite readily. At room temperature it feels like a solid— it can even be shattered with a blow from a hammer.

829 c 973 ft/s (Ans) COMMENT This ratio is called the Mach number, Ma. 0 it is flying at supersonic speeds. The Mach number is an important dimensionless parameter used in the study of the flow of gases at high speeds and will be further discussed in Chapters 7 and 9. 8 It is a common observation that liquids such as water and gasoline will evaporate if they are simply placed in a container open to the atmosphere. Evaporation takes place because some liquid molecules at the surface have sufficient momentum to overcome the intermolecular cohesive forces and escape into the atmosphere.

Note to the users of this text. All of the examples in the text use a consistent problemsolving methodology, which is similar to that in other engineering courses such as statics. Each example highlights the key elements of analysis: Given, Find, Solution, and Comment. The Given and Find are steps that ensure the user understands what is being asked in the problem and explicitly list the items provided to help solve the problem. The Solution step is where the equations needed to solve the problem are formulated and the problem is actually solved.
