mechanics, while subsequent lectures will focus on its applications in chemical
engineering. Topics covered includes: microscopic and macroscopic balances,
Navier-Stokes' equations, Introduction to turbulence, concept of boundary layer,
friction factor, pipe flow, pressure loss in fittings, flow past an immersed

The objective of
the course note is to provide a survey of a wide variety of topics in fluid
mechanics, including a rigorous derivation of the compressible Navier-Stokes
equations, vorticity dynamics, compressible flow, potential flow, and viscous
Fluid Mechanics A Short Course For PhysicistsGregory
| 125 Pages
One of the main goals of this book is to let you understand how the
wind blows and how the water flows so that swimming or flying you may appreciate
what is actually going on. Concepts introduced in the mechanics of particles
were subsequently applied to optics, electromagnetism, quantum mechanics etc;
here you will see the ideas and methods developed for the mechanics of fluids,
which are used to analyze other systems with many degrees of freedom in
statistical physics and quantum field theory.
