Designed for the fluid mechanics course for mechanical engineers or as a reference for professional engineers, this up to date text uses computer algorithms and applications to solve modern problems related to fluid flow, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. Algorithms for numerical solutions of fluid problems (which can be implemented in programming environments such as MATLAB) will be used throughout the book, and it also includes an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics, a well-established method in the design of heat transfer and cooling applications. A DVD accompanies the book with source code, MATLAB files, third-party simulations, color figures, and other resources.Summary After reading this chapter and working through the problems, you should be able to apply the hydrostatic formula to calculate the pressure at any point in a fluid at rest, integrate the pressure to calculate the force on a solid objectanbsp;...
