Synopsis

A DEDUCTIVE APPROACH TO FLUID MECHANICSBy following a concise thematic organization, Principles of Fluid Mechanics covers the basic theory, physics, and applications of fluid flow from a general viewpoint that makes it easy for students to follow and understand. * Introduces fluid mechanic concepts using the universality--and simplicity--of the conservation laws * Covers the material in a deductive manner by following a systematic, step-by-step approach * Reinforces the discussion and concepts through numerous example problems * Stresses the combined use of mathematical analysis and experimental and computer modeling in solving problems * Promotes an overall educational approach required by current engineering problems that are open-ended and multidisciplinary in nature

ANDREAS ALEXANDROU is currently a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Director of the Semisolid Metal Processing Center. He received the B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1982) from the American University of Beirut while on a U.S. AID/Fullbright scholarship. At the University of Michigan he earned the M.S. degrees in Mechanical Engineering (1983) and Civil Engineering (1985), and the Ph.D. degree in Mechanical Engineering (1986). His research interests and contributions are in basic fluid flows, fluid mechanic applications in material processing, and microgravity and wake flows. He has well over 70 scientific publications and numerous presentations to his credit, and has co-authored an advanced textbook on viscous fluid flow. He received the 1992 WPI Board of Trustee's Award for Outstanding Teaching, the 1993 Morgan Distinguished Instructorship Award, and the 1996 Russell M.
