Basics of Fluid Mechanics
Author: Genick Bar–Meir, Ph. D.
Number of Pages: 288
Book Description: This book started because I needed an introduction to the compressible flow book.
After a while it seems that is easier to write a whole book than the two original planned
chapters. In writing this book, it was assumed that introductory book on fluid me-
chanics should not contained many new ideas but should be modern in the material
presentation. There are numerous books on fluid mechanics but none of which is open
content. The approach adapted in this book is practical, and more hands–on approach.
This statement really meant that the book is intent to be used by students to solve
their exams and also used by practitioners when they search for solutions for practical
problems. So, issue of proofs so and so are here only either to explain a point or have
a solution of exams. Otherwise, this book avoids this kind of issues.
The structure of Hansen, Streeter and Wylie, and Shames books were adapted
and used as a scaffolding for this book. This author was influenced by Streeter and
Wylie book which was his undergrad textbooks. The chapters are not written in order.
The first 4 chapters were written first because they were supposed to be modified and
used as fluid mechanics introduction in “Fundamentals of Compressible Flow.” Later,
multi–phase flow chapter was written.
