Visualized flow: fluid motion in basic and engineering situations revealed by flow visualization
Flow Visualization always plays an important role in understanding flow phenomena and contributes significantly to the physical intuitive reasonong necessary to successfully apply the knowledge gained to real life situations. This book is designed to enhance the understanding of basic flow phenomena through over 200 high quality flow visualization photographs, some in colour, and explanations. The book opens with a summary of flow visualization methods, and then proceeds to present flow phenomena as revealed by various flow visualization techniques. The treatment ranges from fundamental aspects, such as laminar and turbulent flow, to engineering applications; for example, understanding why cavitation damage occurred on the runner of a Francis turbine. Current and new visualization techniques are employed such that invisible flow, as in air and water, is made clearly visible and comprehensible. Visualized Flow was compiled and edited under the guidance of the Japanese Society of Mechanical Engineers. This English edition will be indispensable to engineers, researchers and students in understanding flow phenomena across the wide range of sciences wherever fluid flow is important.
