This book is aimed at diploma and graduate level students, and is completely revised to reflect current developments.
Summary Of The Book
This book provides a comprehensive coverage of fluid mechanics and hydraulics for diploma or graduate level degree courses. This text has been revised to incorporate SI units throughout the book.
Fluid mechanics is the study of all the properties and behavior of fluids at rest and in motion. It also studies the forces acting on the fluids and the response to these forces. Fluid mechanics also goes into the possible practical uses and applications of these properties and behavior in science and industries. Hydraulics is a specialized field that has its roots in fluid mechanics. It finds a lot of practical applications in engineering. It is, in essence the study and application of fluid properties and behavior for practical uses.
A Textbook Of Hydraulics, Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Mechanics covers the subject from the basics. It starts with an overview, then covers Hydrostatics, study and measurement of Fluid Pressure and introduces Hydrokinematics.
The book covers Floating Bodies and their Equilibrium, applications of Bernoulli’s equation, Flow through Orifices, Notches, Weirs, and Simple Pipes. It also covers how fluids flow through Open Channels and examines both uniform and non-uniform flows. It also discusses Viscous and Vortex flows, Resistance due to Viscosity when accelerated, Compressible Flow of Fluids and its mechanics, and Model and Dimensional Analysis.
A Textbook Of Hydraulics, Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Mechanics also discusses Jet Propulsion, different kinds of Turbines and their performance, Water Wheels, Pumps and their Performance, Hydraulic Systems and Pumping Devices.
A Textbook Of Hydraulics, Fluid Mechanics And Hydraulic Mechanics has been thoroughly revised to bring it up-to-date. The book also has been edited to use SI Units in its coverage. It also includes over a hundred solved examples. These have been chosen from various university exams to provide illustrations and practice.
