FLUID FLOWS OVER IMMERSED BODIES
Introduction
When we talk about a synopsis we explain the main points of the subject in essence to gain an
upper hand on the big picture of the subject and how it is situated within the whole.
A course in fl

CHAPTER FIVE
FLUID FLOWS IN PIPES
In this chapter we will pay attention to a special class of fluid flows that is most frequently
encountered in engineering applications. These are fluid flows in pipes. We use pipes to
transport fluids, to accelerate

Chapter VII
COMPRESSIBLE GAS FLOWS
Introduction to Gas Dynamics
As we mentioned before all fluids experience some degree of compressibility.
However,
compressibility of liquids is so small, that we consider all liquids under all conditions of motion

The Differential Analysis of Fluid Flows
In Fluid Mechanics I, we considered the analysis of fluid flows using the finite control volume
analysis. In such analysis we consider a certain large-scale volume of fluid confined by certain
boundar

Chapter III
Incompressible Inviscid Flows
Frictionless Flows
In a previous lecture, after developing Navier-Stokes equations we discussed the dimensionless
form. We then showed the dependence of these equations on the Reynolds number. We also
showed th

Differential Analysis of Internal Viscous
Flows
Parallel Flows
The Navier-Stokes Equations of a three-dimensional incompressible flow include four unknown
functions; three velocity components and the pressure. Parallel flows constitute a par
