Professor Harry Edmar Schulz is a professor in the School of Engineering of the University of São Paulo, Brazil. He is a Civil Engineer (1982) specialist in the Teaching of Transport Phenomena (1985) MSc., and a doctor in Hydraulics and Sanitary Eng. (1985 and 1990). He is also a professor in Transport Phenomena (1997), a full professor in Fluid Mechanics and Transport Phenomena (2002). Professor Schulz served as a visiting researcher in the IfH, Universität Karlsruhe (1992-1993, 1998-1999) and in the SAFL, University of Minnesota (2007-2008). He is an advisor to students working towards their titles as Dr and MSc in Civil Eng. (Hydraulics and Sanitation) and in Mechanical Eng. (Fluid Mechanics). Professor Schulz’s interests are in fluid mechanics, turbulence, and related transport phenomena: applied hydraulics, environmental education related to water resources, and the interaction between philosophical and scientific points of view for the improving of the teaching in engineering and exact sciences.

Latest work with IntechOpen by Harry Schulz

The present book on Hydrodynamics - Concepts and Experiments contains six chapters, each of which devoted to a topic considered interesting to compose this book. Although the tools used in the different chapters are somewhat superposed, a first classification may be presented as: the first two chapters describe numerical models; the third and fourth chapters use experimental tools and results; and the fourth, fifth and sixth chapters present conceptual aspects of fluid dynamics. A more detailed description is furnished in the sequence. The six topics that compose this book may be resumed as: Flow-Structure Interactions, Hydrodynamic Models and Biological processes in Coastal Waters, Useful Cavitation, New Concepts in Hydraulic Jumps, Lagrangian Formulation of Fluid Dynamics, and Small Perturbations in Viscous Fluids.
