Shallow water problems
10.1 Introduction
The flow of water in shallow layers such as occur in coastal estuaries, oceans, rivers, etc.,
is of obvious practical importance. The prediction of tidal currents and elevations is vital

Compressible high-speed gas flow
7.1 Introduction
Problems posed by high-speed gas flow are of obvious practical importance. Applications range from the exterior flows associated with flight to interior flows typical of
turbomachinery. As the cost of ph

Turbulent flows
8.1 Introduction
In the majority of moderate and high speed flow problems some form of random
variation of flow variables exists. The laminar treatment discussed in the previous
chapters is generally not applicable when such variations o

Long and medium waves
11.1 Introduction and equations
The main developments in this chapter relate to linearized surface waves in water, but
acoustic and electromagnetic waves will also be mentioned. We start from the wave

6.1 Introduction
In Chapter 4 we have introduced the reader to the solution of incompressible flow
problems and have illustrated these with many examples of Newtonian (Chapter 4) and
non-Newtonian (Chapter 5) flows

5.1 Introduction
In this chapter we discuss the non-Newtonian effect in flow problems. In non-Newtonian
flow cases, the viscosity of the material is dependent on non-linear relations of the stress
and/or strain rate. S
