Fluid Mechanics by A. K. Mohanty
In this new edition of Fluid Mechanics, which is a revised and substantially expanded version of the first edition, several new topics like open channel flow, hydraulic turbines, hydraulic transients, flow measurements and pumps and fans have been added. The chapter on one-dimensional viscous flow has also been expanded. With the addition of five new chapters, the treatment is now more indepth and comprehensive.The book gives a thorough analysis of topics such as fluid statics, fluid kinematics, analysis of finite control volumes, and the mechanical energy equation. It provides a comprehensive description of one- dimensional viscous flow, dimensional analysis, two-dimensional flow of ideal fluids, and normal and oblique shocks.Each chapter ends with a Summary and Exercises, which enables the student to recapture the topics discussed and drill him in the theory. Finally, the worked-out examples_with solutions to most of them_should be of considerable assistance to the reader in comprehending the problems discussed.
