The Handbook of Fluid Dynamics provides professionals in the field of fluid dynamics with a comprehensive guide and resource.

The book balances three traditional areas of fluid mechanics - theoretical, computational, and experimental - and expounds on basic science and engineering techniques.

Each chapter introduces a topic, discusses the primary issues related to this subject, outlines approaches taken by experts, and supplies references for further information.

    
Topics discussed include:
  • basic engineering fluid dynamics
  • classical fluid dynamics
  • turbulence modeling
  • reacting flows
  • multiphase flows
  • flow and porous media
  • high Reynolds number asymptotic theories
  • finite difference method
  • finite volume method
  • finite element method spectral element methods for incompressible flows
  • experimental methods, such as hot-wire anemometry, laser-Doppler velocimetry, and flow visulatization
  • applications, such as axial-flow compressor and fan aerodynamics, turbomachinery, airfoils and wings, atmospheric flows, and mesoscale oceanic flows
     The text enables experts in particular areas to become familiar with useful information from outside their specialization, providing a broad reference for the significant areas within fluid dynamics.
Features
  • Serves as a guidebook for working professionals
  • Presents introductions, approaches and references for specific topics
  • Offers information on classical areas of fluid dynamics as well as solutions for modern problems
  • Explains experimental methods in fluid mechanics, including laser-Doppler velocimetry, particle image velocimetry, and phase Doppler particle analysis
  • Discusses a range of applications, including turbomachinery, nozzles and diffuser, pumps, open channel flow, and lubrication
  • Provides appendixes on mathematics, dimensionless numbers, transport properties, and units and constants
     "This handbook is a professionally written, extensive source of information relevant to the field of fluid mechanics. The book will be very useful to government, industry, and university researchers to plan future research tasks in analytical, computational, and experimental methods and applications."
