About the Book
Fluid mechanics is concerned with the behaviour of liquids and gases and is important in many branches of engineering – biomechanics, oceanography, chemical, aeronautical, mechanical, and civil engineering including environmental studies. There are specialized books on fluid mechanics for each of these areas and therefore this book will present only general properties of fluid flow. The book examines various forms of energy, especially thermo and hydro power, and provides outlines of various types of power plants. An outstanding feature of the book is the classification of fluid mechanics.
1. Dimensions and Systems of Units, 2. Fluid Flow, 3. Thermal and Hydropower Stations, 4. Fluid Machinery, 5. Pelton Turbine, 6. Francis Turbine, 7. Propeller and Kaplan Turbines, 8. Turbo Pumps, 9. Positive Displacement Pumps
