Reflecting the author's years of industry and teaching experience, Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery features many innovative problems and their systematically worked solutions. To understand fundamental concepts and various conservation laws of fluid mechanics is one thing, but applying them to solve practical problems is another challenge. The book covers various topics in fluid mechanics, turbomachinery flowpath design, and internal cooling and sealing flows around rotors and stators of gas turbines.
As an ideal source of numerous practice problems with detailed solutions, the book will be helpful to senior-undergraduate and graduate students, teaching faculty, and researchers engaged in many branches of fluid mechanics. It will also help practicing thermal and fluid design engineers maintain and reinforce their problem-solving skills, including primary validation of their physics-based design tools.
