Product Description: Fluid Dynamics presents the basic development of equations in coordinate-invariant form and their use in solving problems in laminar and turbulent flows. This book presents a thorough examination of fluid dynamics by combining fundamental principles with systematic mathematical, and computational approaches.
Chapters 1 and 2 provide the requisites of theoretical fluid dynamics - free from any coordinate system and covering all basic equations.
Chapter 3 examines the Navier-Stokes equations and Euler's equations in steady and non-steady curvilinear coordinates. It also discusses the essential aspects of vorticity and stream functions.
Chapter 4 describes inviscid incompressible and compressible flows, supplementing the treatment of the boundary layer theory.
Chapter 5 treats the exact solutions of the Navier-Stokes equations, classical and modern boundary layer theory, and incompressible and compressible forms of the Navier-Stokes formulations. It also discusses the hyperbolic system of partial differential equations and introduces the idea of characteristics through solutions of the Burger's and related equations.
In Fluid Dynamics, the author also:
  • Describes how to transform the complete Navier-Stokes system of equations to general steady and non-steady coordinates
  • Covers the method of vector and tensor analysis
  • Explores laminar flow theory
  • Provides a systematic approach to turbulence theory, starting with an introduction to the linear stability theory
  • Explains the theory of homogeneous and isotropic turbulence as well as the turbulent boundary layers
  • Lays a solid foundation for the theory of turbulence modeling for incompressible and compressible flows
  • Emphasizes learning the techniques for using the derived results in solving physical flow problems on high-speed computers
  • Discusses various numerical techniques for solving boundary layer and Navier-Stokes equations
  • Demonstrates the existence of characteristics in the solution of hyberbolic system of equations through a series of simple examples
    Fluid Dynamics enables students and professionals to grasp and assimilate a constructive framework for modern fluid dynamics, providing a set of algorithmic tools to create useful physical and computational results.

    1. How do textbook rentals work?
    It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
    2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
    We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
    3. How do I track my order?
    Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
    4. How do I return my books?
    When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
    5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
    Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
    6. How much money can renting my books save?
    It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
    7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
    Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
    8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
    One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
    9. What if I don’t return my rental?
    If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
    10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
    Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

    Make A Difference

    At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
