Fluid Mechanics 9th SI Version
This text is written for an introductory course in fluid mechanics. Our approach to the subject, emphasizes the physical concepts of fluid mechanics and methods of analysis that begin from basic principles. The primary objective of this text is to help users develop an orderly approach to problem solving. Thus we always start from governing equations, state assumptions clearly, and try to relate mathematical results to corresponding physical behaviour. We emphasize the use of control volumes to maintain a practical problem-solving approach that is also theoretically inclusive.
Smith/Hashemi’s Foundations of Materials Science and Engineering, 5/e provides an eminently readable and understandable overview of engineering materials for undergraduate students. This edition offers a fully revised chemistry chapter and a new chapter on biomaterials as well as a new taxonomy for homework problems that will help students and instructors gauge and set goals for student learning. Through concise explanations, numerous worked-out examples, a wealth of illustrations & photos, and a brand new set of online resources, the new edition provides the most student-friendly introduction to the science & engineering of materials. The extensive media package available with the text provides Virtual Labs, tutorials, and animations, as well as image files, case studies, FE Exam review questions, and a solutions manual and lecture PowerPoint files for instructors.
About the Author
Javad Hashemi is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Texas Tech University and is currently serving as the Associate Dean for Research in the Edward E. Whitacre College of Engineering. Javad received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Drexel University in 1988. He has been teaching undergraduate and graduate materials and mechanics courses, as well as laboratories, at Texas Tech University since 1991. Dr. Hashemi has an extensive research background in manufacturing, structural, and synthesis aspects of materials. His current research focus is the areas of materials, biomaterials, and engineering education. The late William F. Smith was Professor Emeritus of Engineering in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the University of Central Florida at Orlando, Florida. He was awarded an M.S. degree in metallurgical engineering from Purdue University and a Sc.D. degree in metallurgy from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr. Smith, who was a registered professional engineer in the states of California and Florida, taught undergraduate and graduate materials science and engineering courses and actively wrote textbooks for many years. He was also the author of Structure and Properties of Engineering Alloys, Second Edition (McGraw- Hill, 1993).
Mechanics of Flight is an ideal introduction to the basic principles of flight for students embarking on courses in aerospace engineering, student pilots, apprentices in the industry and anyone who is simply interested in aircraft and space flight. Written in a straightforward and jargon-free style, this popular classic text makes the fascinating topic of aircraft flight engaging and easy to understand. Starting with an overview of the relevant aspects of mechanics, the book goes on to cover topics such as air and airflow, aerofoils, thrust, level flight, gliding, landing, performance, manoeuvres, stability and control. Important aspects of these topics are illustrated by a description of a trial flight in a light aircraft. The book also deals with flight at transonic and supersonic speeds, and finally orbital and space flight.
This text book on Hydraulic Machines provides an in-depth coverage of the descriptions, characteristics, underlying principles of working and applications of hydraulic machines. An attempt is made in the book to indicate present trends in practice and analysis in hydraulic turbines and pumps. Applications of various Hydraulic Machines are highlighted.
The seventh edition of White’s Fluid Mechanics offers students a clear and comprehensive presentation of the material that demonstrates the progression from physical concepts to engineering applications and helps students quickly see the practical importance of fluid mechanics fundamentals. The wide variety of topics gives instructors many options for their course and is a useful resource to students long after graduation. The book’s unique problem-solving approach is presented at the start of the book and carefully integrated in all examples. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage.
