Publisher Comments:

This book provides a comprehensive and wide-ranging introduction to fluid mechanics, assuming only a basic knowledge of calculus and physics. Introduces fluid mechanics within the context of a broad range of topics and disciplines by combining elements and concepts from different disciplines as is often found in solutions to engineering problems. The book integrates a discussion of fluid flow phenomena with that of other subjects, such as Solid Mechanics, Heat Transfer, Thermodynamics, and others. It also includes discussions of other fields of specialization often used to solve engineering problems, such as chemistry, biology, economics, sociology, and others. And, it integrates the use of computers and modern experimental techniques. The first edition of Introduction to Fluid Mechanics provides a unique thematic organization and divides the material into three sections: Theory. This section is divided into four categories: Introduction, Conservation Laws, Fluid Kinematics, and Fluid Dynamics. Analysis. In this section, procedures such as Dimensionless Analysis, Analytics, Experimental and Numerical Solutions are introduced and applied to fundamental problems. Special Topics. Topics such as ideal, invisicid flow, compressible flow, and dynamics of rotating fluids are reserved for separate chapters. The book also introduces ideas from computational and experimental fluid mechanics. An essential reference for all engineering professionals.

Book News Annotation:

This textbook covers the basic theory, physics, and applications of fluid flow. It explains fluid mechanic concepts in terms of conservation laws, reinforces the discussion with numerous example problems, and emphasizes the combined use of mathematical analysis, experiments, and computer models. Specific chapters consider conservation laws, fluid kinematics and deformation, dimensional analysis, exact analytic solutions, combined analytical and experimental solutions, ideal inviscid flow, turbomachinery, compressible flow, experimental fluid dynamics, and computational fluid dynamics. Diagrams, photographs, and drawings illustrate key points. Alexandrou teaches mechanical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

Synopsis:

A DEDUCTIVE APPROACH TO FLUID MECHANICS

By following a concise thematic organization, Principles of Fluid Mechanics covers the basic theory, physics, and applications of fluid flow from a general viewpoint that makes it easy for students to follow and understand.

  • Introduces fluid mechanic concepts using the universality—and simplicity—of the conservation laws
  • Covers the material in a deductive manner by following a systematic, step-by-step approach
  • Reinforces the discussion and concepts through numerous example problems
  • Stresses the combined use of mathematical analysis and experimental and computer modeling in solving problems
  • Promotes an overall educational approach required by current engineering problems that are open-ended and multidisciplinary in nature

About the Author

ANDREAS ALEXANDROU is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Director of the Semisolid Metal Processing Center. He received the B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1982) from the American University of Beirut while on a U.S. AID/Fullbright scholarship. At the University of Michigan he earned the M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering (1983) and Civil Engineering (1985), and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1986). His research interests and contributions are in basic fluid flows, fluid mechanic applications in material processing, and microgravity and wake flows. He has well over 70 scientific publications and numerous presentations to his credit, and has co-authored an advanced textbook on viscous fluid flow. He received the 1992 WPI Board of Trustee's Award for Outstanding Teaching, the 1993 Morgan Distinguished Instructorship Award, and the 1996 Russell M. Searle Teacher of the Year Award in Mechanical Engineering.
