Engineering fluid dynamics : an interdisciplinary systems by Clement Kleinstreuer

By Clement Kleinstreuer

This article offers an intensive remedy of the basic rules of fluid mechanics and convection warmth move and indicates find out how to follow the foundations to a large choice of fluid movement difficulties. the point of interest is on incompressible viscous flows with specific functions to non-Newtonian fluid flows, turbulent flows, and free-forced convection flows. a distinct function of the textual content is its insurance of generalized mass, momentum, and warmth move equations, Cartesian tensor manipulations, scale analyses, mathematical modeling ideas, and sensible resolution equipment. the ultimate bankruptcy is exclusive in its case-study strategy, making use of common modeling ideas to research nonisothermal stream platforms present in a variety of engineering disciplines. the writer offers a number of end-of-chapter difficulties, suggestions, and mathematical aids to reinforce the reader's knowing and problem-solving skills

In classical thermodynamics, the theory starts directly from experimental results, using heat and work as fundamental concepts. 7) where the use of 8 as a differential sign indicates that an infinitesimal amount of, say, work done, 8 W = —p dV, is an inexact differential. 8b,c) Cp = -^ P,N is the specific heat at constant volume and constant pressure. It is apparent that different choices of independent and dependent variables can be made in thermodynamics depending upon which is most advantageous for a given problem.
