Basics of Fluid Mechanics
by Genick Bar-Meir
Number of pages: 189
This book, Basics of Fluid Mechanics, describes the fundamentals of fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructor’s notes for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.

The author's intention was to provide a foundation for the support and promotion of research in rotating fluids. The text concentrates on those topics which the author considers fundamental, of central importance to most the areas of application.

In these notes we study liquid layers, capillary interfaces and floating bodies. Leading term in the associated equilibrium equation for the interface is the mean curvature. In the case of liquid layers no volume constraint or contact angle occur.

This course will deal with a mathematical idealization of common fluids. The main idealization is embodied in the notion of a continuum and our 'fluids' will generally be identified with a certain connected set of points in 1, 2, or 3 dimensions.

An introduction to the field of numerical hydrodynamics. It will give you some insight in what is involved in such calculations. Numerical hydrodynamics is used in many parts of astrophysics. The applications we consider in this exercise are stellar.
