Designed for the fluid mechanics course for mechanical engineers or as a reference for professional engineers, this up to date text uses computer algorithms and applications to solve modern problems related to fluid flow, aerodynamics, and thermodynamics. Algorithms for numerical solutions of fluid problems (which can be implemented in programming environments such as MATLAB) will be used throughout the book, and it also includes an introduction to Computational Fluid Dynamics, a well-established method in the design of heat transfer and cooling applications. A DVD accompanies the book with source code, MATLAB files, third-party simulations, color figures, and other resources.... balloons Linear Momentum http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/ mflow.htmlaJet engine info ... to race car aerodynamics http://www.princeton.edu /~asmits/Bicycle_web/bicycle_aero.htmlaBicycle aerodynamics ... of dynamic soaringasome birds use a form of this to fly long distances http://units.aps.org/ units/dfd/prandtl_vol58no12p42_48.pdfaLudwig Prandtl and boundary layer theoryanbsp;...
