*Incompressible Flow*, Third Edition is the updated and revised edition of Ronald Panton’s classic text on fluid mechanics. Beginning with basic principles, this Third Edition patiently develops the math and physics leading to major theories. The book provides a unified presentation of physics, mathematics, and engineering applications, along with a liberal supplement of helpful exercises and example problems. New features include chapters on the modern measurements of the pipe flow friction factor, expanded details on the mathematics of E2E2Y operator, the Jeffrey-Hamel solution and its limits with Reynolds number, and more. Complete with new problems, solvable with such PC-based calculation software as MathCAD and MATLAB, Incompressible Flow, Third Edition is a valuable resource for professionals in the mechanical, aerospace, civil, and chemical engineering fields.

A introduction to advanced concepts in fluid mechanics, starting from basic principles and developing the math and physics leading to major theories, for graduate students and practicing engineers in mechanical, aerospace, chemical, and civil engineering. Covers stream functions, velocity potential, vorticity, and elemental flow processes for the different Reynolds number regions, emphasizing the connections between high Reynolds number flows, and contains exercises and example problems. This second edition includes revised material on stability, transition, and turbulence. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
