Your solution to mastering fluid mechanics Need to learn about the properties of liquids and gases the pressures and forces they exert? Here's your lifeline! Fluid Mechanics Demystified helps you absorb the essentials of this challenging engineering topic. Written in an easy-to-follow format, this practical guide begins by reviewing basic principles and discussing fluid statics. Next, you'll dive into fluids in motion, integral and differential equations, dimensional analysis, and similitude. Internal, external, and compressible flows are also covered. Hundreds of worked examples and equations make it easy to understand the material, and end-of-chapter quizzes and two final exam, with solutions to all their problems, help reinforce learning. This hands-on, self-teaching text offers: Numerous figures to illustrate key concepts Details on Bernoulli's equation and the Reynolds number Coverage of entrance, laminar, turbulent, open channel, and boundary layer flows SI units throughout A time-saving approach to performing better on an exam or at work Simple enough for a beginner, but challenging enough for an advanced student, Fluid Mechanics Demystified is your shortcut to understanding this essential engineering subject.

This book is intended for self-study or as a companion of lectures delivered to post-graduate students on the subject of the computational prediction of complex turbulent flows. There are several books in the extensive literature on turbulence that deal, in statistical terms, with the phenomenon itself, as well its many manifestations in the context of fluid dynamics. Statistical Turbulence Modelling for Fluid Dynamics — Demystified differs from these and focuses on the physical interpretation of a broad range of mathematical models used to represent the time-averaged effects of turbulence in computational prediction schemes for fluid flow and related transport processes in engineering and the natural environment. It dispenses with complex mathematical manipulations and instead gives physical and phenomenological explanations. This approach allows students to gain a 'feel' for the physical fabric represented by the mathematical structure that describes the effects of turbulence and the models embedded in most of the software currently used in practical fluid-flow predictions, thus counteracting the ill-informed black-box approach to turbulence modelling. This is done by taking readers through the physical arguments underpinning exact concepts, the rationale of approximations of processes that cannot be retained in their exact form, and essential calibration steps to which the resulting models are subjected by reference to theoretically established behaviour of, and experimental data for, key canonical flows.

The book presents a collection of selected papers from the I Workshop of the Venezuelan Society of Fluid Mechanics held on Margarita Island, Venezuela from November 4 to 9, 2012. Written by experts in their respective fields, the contributions are organized into five parts: - Part I Invited Lectures, consisting of full-length technical papers on both computational and experimental fluid mechanics covering a wide range of topics from drops to multiphase and granular flows to astrophysical flows, - Part II Drops, Particles and Waves - Part III Multiphase and Multicomponent Flows - Part IV Atmospheric and Granular Flows - and Part V Turbulent and Astrophysical Flows. The book is intended for upper-level undergraduate and graduate students as well as for physicists, chemists and engineers teaching and working in the field of fluid mechanics and its applications. The contributions are the result of recent advances in theoretical and experimental research in fluid mechanics, encompassing both fundamentals as well as applications to fluid engineering design, including pipelines, turbines, flow separators, hydraulic systems and biological fluid elements, and to granular, environmental and astrophysical flows.

Neuere Entwicklungen der Entscheidungstheorie, die in der deutschsprachigen Literatur bislang noch kaum Beachtung fanden, sind Gegenstand dieses Buchs. Es geht um Alternativen zur subjektiven Erwartungsnutzentheorie, die der Erfassung intransitiver Präferenzen und der Berücksichtigung von Ergebnisplausibilitäten, Ambiguität, potentieller Enttäuschung und potentiellem Bedauern dienen. Im Mittelpunkt steht ein axiomatischer Ansatz, der die Entwicklung leicht verständlicher Axiomensysteme und die Lösung einiger bislang noch ungelöster Axiomatisierungsprobleme erlaubt. Die ausführlich dargestellten Beweise sind in Anhänge zu den einzelnen Kapiteln ausgelagert.

Mit diesem nun in der 9. Auflage vorliegenden Buch soll die Strömungslehre einem weiten Kreis, darunter auch Fachleuten verwandter Naturwissenschaften, anschaulich nahegebracht werden. Die Zielsetzung Ludwig Prandtls in den ersten Auflagen hat sich damit in keiner Weise geändert. Der Stoff des Faches ist allerdings außerordentlich angewachsen: Ältere Gebiete wurden vertieft und neue Gebiete sind dazugekommen. Während die Vertiefung jedoch im wesentlichen der in den Literaturverzeichnissen angeführten Spezialliteratur überlassen wurde, fand die Erweiterung der Strömungslehre in der neuen Auflage entsprechenden Raum.

Müssen Sie sich mit Thermodynamik beschäftigen, wissen aber nicht genau wo Sie anfangen sollen zu lernen? Dann ist dies das richtige Buch für Sie. Raimund Ruderich erklärt Ihnen, was Sie über die Hauptsätze der Thermodynamik unbedingt wissen sollten. Er setzt aber auch noch grundlegender an und erläutert Ihnen, was Sie makroskopisch und mikroskopisch über Materie wissen sollten und was es mit den physikalischen und chemischen Materialgleichungen der Gase auf sich hat. Dabei geht es nicht nur um graue Theorie, auch der grüne Baum der Praxis bleibt nicht außen vor und so erläutert der Autor Kreisprozesse, Mischungen idealer Gase und vieles mehr.
