This textbook presents the basic concepts and methods of fluid mechanics, including Lagrangian and Eulerian descriptions, tensors of stresses and strains, continuity, momentum, energy, thermodynamics laws, and similarity theory. The models and their solutions are presented within a context of the mechanics of multiphase media. The treatment fully utilizes the computer algebra and software system Mathematicato both develop concepts and help the reader to master modern methods of solving problems in fluid mechanics.
Topics and features:
Glossary of over thirty Mathematicacomputer programs
Extensive, self-contained appendix of Mathematicafunctions and their use
Chapter coverage of mechanics of multiphase heterogeneous media
Detailed coverage of theory of shock waves in gas dynamics
Thorough discussion of aerohydrodynamics of ideal and viscous fluids an
Complete worked examples with detailed solutions
