Introduction to Fluid Dynamics
We derive equations governing fluid flows from the basic physical conservation laws. Exact analytic solutions to various elementary flow problems are obtained. We consider viscous flow, irrotational flow, boundary layers and water waves. Flow instability will also be examined. Mathematical results are related to phenomena observed in aerodynamics, flow through conduits and geophysical flows.
