Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics
A look at fundamental aspects of fluid motion, including important fluid properties, regimes of flow, pressure variations in fluids at rest and in motion, fluid kinematics, and methods of flow description and analysis. This book describes the essential elements of kinematics, including Eulerian and Lagrangian mathematical descriptions of flow phenomena, and indicates the vital relationship between the two views.
All measures provided in both the British Gravitational System (pounds, slugs, feet, and seconds), and the International System of Units (Newton's, kilograms, meters, and seconds).
