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.
