This edition retains the basic approach and style that has appealed to readers for over fifty years. The first half focuses on fundamental physical and analytical principles. The second half covers applications of those principles to flow in pipes and open channels, lift and drag, fluid machinery, and compressible flow. The final chapter is an introduction to an array of fluid measurements and the instruments for making them.chapter 2 Fluid Statics Fluid statics is the study of fluid problems in which there is no relative motion between fluid elements. With no relative motion between individual elements (and thus no velocity gradients), no shear stress can exist, anbsp;...
