Applied Mechanics: Made Simple presents the fundamental principles of Mechanics and their application to engineering problems. The book describes the principles of Statics and the principles of Dynamics. The text also discusses motion, kinematics, forces, and laws governing the combination of two or more forces, as well as the link between force and motion (kinetics). The concepts of work, energy, power, momentum, and stress and strain, as well as the applications of these concepts (the bending of beams and the twisting of shafts) are also considered. The book concludes by tackling the study of forces applied to fluids. First year engineering students will find the book invaluable.CHAPTER TWELVE PROPERTIES OF FLUIDS IN MOTION The simple calculations of pressure and forces which we ... This is one typical problem of fluid dynamicsa#39;, as distinct from fluid staticsa#39; which we examined in the previous chapter.
