Fluid Mechanics: An Intermediate Approach (Hardback)Bijay Sultanian (author)
- We can order this
Fluid Mechanics: An Intermediate Approach addresses the problems facing engineers today by taking on practical, rather than theoretical problems. Instead of following an approach that focuses on mathematics first, this book allows you to develop an intuitive physical understanding of various fluid flows, including internal compressible flows with simultaneous area change, friction, heat transfer, and rotation. Drawing on over 40 years of industry and teaching experience, the author emphasizes physics-based analyses and quantitative predictions needed in the state-of-the-art thermofluids research and industrial design applications. Numerous worked-out examples and illustrations are used in the book to demonstrate various problem-solving techniques.
The book covers compressible flow with rotation, Fanno flows, Rayleigh flows, isothermal flows, normal shocks, and oblique shocks; Bernoulli, Euler, and Navier-Stokes equations; boundary layers; and flow separation.
Includes two value-added chapters on special topics that reflect the state of the art in design applications of fluid mechanicsContains a value-added chapter on incompressible and compressible flow network modeling and robust solution methods not found in any leading book in fluid mechanicsGives an overview of CFD technology and turbulence modeling without its comprehensive mathematical detailsProvides an exceptional review and reinforcement of the physics-based understanding of incompressible and compressible flows with many worked-out examples and problems from real-world fluids engineering applications
Fluid Mechanics: An Intermediate Approach uniquely aids in the intuitive understanding of various fluid flows for their physics-based analyses and quantitative predictions needed in the state-of-the-art thermofluids research and industrial design applications.

"... addresses a series of topics in this book, that are often left to more advanced courses or not covered at all at university. ... this book is recommended to students undertaking advanced topics in engineering fluid mechanics as well as practicing engineers who find they need something that goes beyond the treatment found in introductory text.
-Professor Peter Childs, Head of School, Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London
"The Table of Contents demonstrates that the topics here considered cover the arguments of at least two courses at M. Sc. Level. ... The arguments were treated in a proper way and clearly explained. ... I particularly appreciated presence of a chapter on Flow Network Modelling, which is usually treated in M.Sc. courses using very crude assumptions. I think that this book can be used in many Universities throughout the world. I am thinking to include parts of the arguments in my course Computational Thermo-Fluids Analysis in Fluid Machinery, for M.Sc. students in Mechanical Engineering and Energy Engineering."

"Bijay Sultanian has brought together in one well written book the necessary material an engineer needs to know to be able to design and analyze fluid machinery."
-Ameri, The Ohio State University
"This new volume offers excellent intermediate course material in fluid mechanics. The coverage, example problems, and material are carefully designed to guide students through challenging concepts for a variety of subject areas. I highly recommend this text."
-Phil Ligrani, Eminent Scholar in Propulsion, University of Alabama in Huntsville
