About the book

Fluid mechanics is a continuously exciting and challenging field of knowledge with an unlimited range of daily life applications. To name a few, sectors of agriculture, industry, power, construction, environment, weather forecast, transport, and biomedical systems are all involving fluid particles as key elements to accomplish the tasks planned for. Despite being a mature subject, where the basic approximations and mathematical formulations are well established and comprehensively covered in the literature, plenty of problems in fluid mechanics not only need knowledge of the principles but also require physical intuition based on experience. This book aims to bring into perspective the fundamentals of interesting phenomena relevant to fluid mechanics and how to apply them from an engineering point of view to tackle practical design problems. Such phenomena may include, but not limited to boundary layer concepts, body force flow, turbulence and transition, porous media flow, fluid-solid interaction, and biofluid dynamics.

About the editor

Ahmed Alhusseny

University of Manchester

Ahmed Alhusseny was awarded his BSc and MSc in air conditioning and refrigeration engineering from the University of Technology, Baghdad, Iraq in 2001 and 2005, respectively. Afterward, he worked as a member of academic staff at the Faculty of Engineering, University of Kufa, Iraq. Recently, Ahmed has done a Ph.D. research entitled "Heat Transfer Enhancement Using Rotating Metallic Porous Media" at the University of Manchester, UK. He had investigated how to enhance the performance of cooling passages within rotating electrical windings through filling them either fully or partially with high-porosity metal foams. Then, he proposed a procedure to numerically analyze and design rotary regenerators based on a porous media concept, which was found to be sufficient to accurately predict thermal and hydrodynamic patterns in such heat exchangers. More recently, he proposed a combined enhancement way to improve the performance of a double pipe heat exchanger by employing both rotation and metal foam structures.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Lada Bozic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
