Preface to Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics eBook
The study of fluid mechanics forms an essential part of all engineering degree courses worldwide. While there have been many changes in education over the years, the teaching of mathematics and physical sciences remains critical to ensure that the next generation of engineers is fully equipped with all the necessary tools for professional practice.
Providing undergraduates with solved problems has proved to be a successful and effective part of the learning process to demonstrate the complexities of the discipline.
This Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics book is a comprehensive collection of problems with accompanying solutions in fluid mechanics which demonstrate the application of fluid flow principles in a range of commonly used engineering applications.
It is a compilation of problems presented in a form that has a consistent nomenclature recognisable to all students of engineering.
Aimed primarily at undergraduate students in the early stages of their academic formation, this Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics book is also aimed at academic tutors as well as practitioners who may encounter challenging problems in fluid mechanics perhaps for the first time.
Recognising that many students learn most effectively by the use of solved problems, the Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics book will also be useful in the preparation of exams. Each problem begins with a statement.
The solution that follows does not present mathematical derivations but instead presents a solution from an easily recognisable starting point.
Both problem and solution are therefore presented to enable the reader to follow each step in the analysis in a way that could be realistically achieved in a tutorial situation.
The nomenclature is designed to be familiar to all engineers. A number of the problems have been provided by academics who are directly involved in teaching fluid mechanics, and by industrialists.
The problems selected are illustrative of key concepts and the significance of their solutions. They are tailored in such a way that the identity of a particular university or company and the nature of its business is avoided.
The problems include two-phase and multi-component flow, viscometry and the use of rheometers, non-Newtonian fluids, as well as new and novel applications of classical fluid flow principles.
Each problem has been prepared using the SI system of units throughout, but it is recognised that non-SI units are still widely used in many industries.
Reference is made to commonly encountered units and conversions presented, where appropriate. In the preparation of this Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics book, I am indebted to the many people who have assisted by providing solved problems.
In particular, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Dr. Isobel Fletcher (University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland), Andrew Bell (University of Strathclyde), Andrew McGuire (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom), Dr. Ian Wilson (University of Cambridge, United Kingdom), Dr. Andy Durrant (University of the West of Scotland, Paisley).
My thanks to the editorial staff of Taylor & Francis/CRC Press, Dr. Gangadeep Singh, Hayley Ruggieri, and Linda Leggio. Finally, this Solved Practical Problems in Fluid Mechanics book could not have been produced without the support of my wife, Melodie, and my daughters, Emily and Rebecca.
The text has been carefully checked. Any errors, omissions, misprints, or obscurities are entirely my own. I would be grateful to receive suggestions for improvements.
