The purpose of this text is to provide the basis for an upper-level undergraduate
or graduate course over one or two semesters, covering basic concepts and
examples of fluid mechanics with particular applications in the natural environment.
The book is designed to meet a dual purpose, providing an advanced
fundamental background in the fluid mechanics of environmental systems and
also applying fluid mechanics principles to a variety of environmental issues.
Biomedical engineering is a discipline that is multidisciplinary by
definition. The days when medicine was left to the physicians, and
engineering was left to the engineers, seem to have passed us by. I
have searched for an undergraduate/graduate level biomedical fluid
mechanics textbook since I began teaching at Rose-Hulman in 1987. I
looked for, but never found, a book that combined the physiology of the
cardiovascular and pulmonary systems with engineering of fluid
mechanics and hematology to my satisfaction, so I agreed to write a monograph.

Central to this book are two ideas. The first is that Fluid Mechanics is relevant to a
wide variety of problems that are priorities in the early 21st
century, three of which are
health, the environment, and energy. The second idea is that researchers in this field
are applying novel methods to address these problems. Even on its most basic level,
Fluid Mechanics is challenging.
There are several good mechanical engineering data books on the market but these tend to be very bulky and
expensive, and are usually only available in libraries as reference books.
The Mechnical Engineer’s Data Handbook has been compiled with the express intention of providing a
compact but comprehensive source of information of particular value to the engineer whether in the design office,
drawing office, research and development department or on site.
The textbook of Open Channel Hydraulics for Engineers, also called Applied Hydraulics, emphasizes the dynamics of the open-channel flow, by attempting to provide a complete framework of the basic equations of motion of the fluid, which are used as building blocks for the treatment of many practical problems. The structure of the document, with seven chapters totally, follows a logical sequence from a description and classification of Fluid Mechanics and Open Channel Flows, as reviewed in Chapter 1. A development of the basic equation of motion for uniform flow is encountered in Chapter 2.
This book presents a fluid mechanics perspective to the dynamics of fronts and vortices and their interaction with waves in geophysical flows. It provides a basic physical background for modeling coherent structures in a geophysical context, and it gives essential information on advanced topics such as spontaneous wave emission and wavemomentum transfer in geophysical flows. Based on a set of lectures by leading specialists, this text is targeted at graduate students, researchers and engineers in geophysics and environmental fluid mechanics.
This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book. After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned chapters. In writing this book, it was assumed that introductory book on fluid me- chanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the
(BQ) Part 1 book "Aerodynamics for engineering students" has contents: Basic concepts and definitions, governing equations of fluid mechanics, potential flow, two-dimensional wing theory, finite wing theory.
These allow products and components to be checked for flaws; assess fit and assembly; study ergonomics; and to analyze static and dynamic characteristics of systems such as stresses, temperatures, electromagnetic emissions, electrical currents and voltages, digital logic levels, fluid flows, and kinematics. Access and distribution of all this information is generally organized with the use of Product Data Management software.

In the Department of Structural and Fluid Mechanics
we are happy to present the first English edition of the
book: ’The Centrifugal Pump’. We have written the book
because we want to share our knowledge of pump hydraulics,
pump design and the basic pump terms which
we use in our daily work.
’The Centrifugal Pump’ is primarily meant as an internal
book and is aimed at technicians who work with
development and construction of pump components.
