Abstract/Summary Fluid dynamics is the engineering science dealing with forces and energies generated by fluids in motion. Fluid dynamics and hydro-dynamics play a vital role in everyday life. Practical examples include the flow motion in the kitchen sink, the exhaust fan above the stove, and the air conditioning system in our home. When driving a car, the air flow around the vehicle body induces some drag which increases with the square of the car speed and contributes to excess fuel consumption. Engineering applications encompass: applied hydrodynamics and fluid transport in pipes and canals, environmental processes and transportation (cars, ships, aircrafts), hydraulic and coastal structures, wind flow around buildings, aerodynamics fluid circulations in lakes, oceans and atmosphere energy generation, fluid motion in the human body. This advanced undergraduate and post-graduate textbook deals with the topic of applied hydrodynamics. The lecture material is grouped into two complementary sections: ideal fluid flow and real fluid flow. The former deals with two- and possibly three-dimensional fluid motions that are not subject to boundary friction effects, while the latter considers the flow regions affected by boundary friction and turbulent shear. The lecture material is designed as an intermediate course in fluid dynamics for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students in Civil, Environmental, Hydraulic and Mechanical Engineering. It is supported in each chapter by: notes; applications; remarks and discussions. Appendices: * major homework assignments (6x) * glossary * mathematics * description of the 2D Flow + software Finally, the work is further supported by 16 pages of colour plates.

CRC Press, Taylor & Francis Group, Leiden, The Netherlands, 478 pages (ISBN: 978-0-415-49271-3 (Hardback); 978-0-203-87626-8 (eBook)). REVIEWS: *Dr Frederic MURZYN, ESTACA (France), Editorial review "[T]he combination of theoretical aspects, perfectly developed, with an applied point of view directly related to engineering and research, is an additional asset which is not found in other books covering the same field. [T]his book should interest all the students, engineers (beginner or not), researchers and teachers in fluid mechanics whatever their field of predilection. To be strongly recommended." *Dr Pierre LUBIN, Assistant Professor, Université de Bordeaux (France), Editorial review "This handbook is of excellent quality and is a great addition to the literature on fluid mechanics. The author made a strong pedagogical effort in writing this book. Without any doubt, it will become a standard work in Fluid Dynamics." *Dr Richard MANASSEH, CSIRO Fluid Dynamics Group (Australia), Editorial review "This should be recommended reading for anyone contemplating numerical calculations or detailed measurements on real engineering geometries, since this training teaches one what to expect. *[T]his text has a wonderful personal touch, including many illustrations and appendices that spring from the author's love of flows in rivers and seas, of the design of ships and aeroplanes, and of history."
