Introduction to Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Machines – While the first two editions of the book were authored by S K Som and Gautam Biswas, Prof. S Chakraborty has extended his support as the co-author for the third edition. The book is a product of three professional brains, that have collaborated to make it a compelling read.
About This Book:
Introduction The third edition of Two Fluid Mechanics and Fluid Machines contains updated material that provides the basis for understanding fluid mechanics and its practical application. Some of the enhanced features of the third edition include expanded coverage of the fluid schematic, a completely modified treatment of the fundamental equations of conservation, and a complete derivation of the Navier Stokes equation.
The book features chapter-end summaries to help readers analyze their understanding of each topic. The book also includes a set of solved examples, and challenges readers with exercise problems, which have been strategically chosen to explain the nuances of the fundamentals of fluid mechanics.
The purpose of the book was written to help students analyze and design different flow systems, and to help them master fluid mechanics and machines. The book was published by McGraw Hill Education India Private Limited. Ltd. in 2011, and available in paperback.
