Description

This book explores a variety of approaches to fluid mechanics, with an emphasis on the application of basic principles to some technological problems encountered in propulsion technologies.
Boundary layers and compressible flow lead into the analytic approach of some questions. An extended introduction to numerical approach is also provided.
This book gathers worked examples of relatively simple approaches to academic problems as well as practical ones. In principle, this work is accessible to all potential readers, but is particularly aimed at engineering students and professionals who require a thorough knowledge of the tools related to fluid mechanics.

Contents

1. The Flow of Viscous Fluids. Flow in the Vicinity of a Wall: Boundary Layers and Films.
2. One-dimensional Compressible Flows: Fully Reversible Flows.
3. One-dimensional Compressible Flows: Irreversible Flows.
4. Modeling and Numerical Simulations.
5. Numerical Simulation of a Vertical-axis Wind Turbine.

About the Authors

Michel Ledoux is Professeur des universités. He was formerly Vice-President for Research at the University of Rouen in France, then Regional Delegate for the Ministry of Education in the region of High Normandy for Research and Technology. He is now retired from University, but is Counselor at the Conservatoire de Arts et Métiers in Normandy and still teaches physics to apprentice-engineers (Cnam and ITII). He was involved in reacting flows and spray systems research.
Abdelkhalak El Hami is Professeur des universités at the Institut National des Sciences Appliquées (INSA-Rouen) in France and is in charge of the Normandy Conservatoire National des Arts et Metiers (CNAM) Chair of Mechanics, as well as several European pedagogical projects. He is an expert in fluid-structure interaction studies and reliability.
