Handbook of Fluid Dynamics (Hardback)Richard W. Johnson (editor)
- We can order this
Handbook of Fluid Dynamics offers balanced coverage of the three traditional areas of fluid dynamics-theoretical, computational, and experimental-complete with valuable appendices presenting the mathematics of fluid dynamics, tables of dimensionless numbers, and tables of the properties of gases and vapors. Each chapter introduces a different fluid dynamics topic, discusses the pertinent issues, outlines proven techniques for addressing those issues, and supplies useful references for further research.
Covering all major aspects of classical and modern fluid dynamics, this fully updated Second Edition:
Reflects the latest fluid dynamics research and engineering applicationsIncludes new sections on emerging fields, most notably micro- and nanofluidicsSurveys the range of numerical and computational methods used in fluid dynamics analysis and designExpands the scope of a number of contemporary topics by incorporating new experimental methods, more numerical approaches, and additional areas for the application of fluid dynamics
Handbook of Fluid Dynamics, Second Edition provides an indispensable resource for professionals entering the field of fluid dynamics. The book also enables experts specialized in areas outside fluid dynamics to become familiar with the field.
