Processes in the ocean or atmosphere can be explained using physics, and the necessary tools of fluid dynamics, such as Reynolds number, are introduced here. Particular attention to paid to eddies… Expand

This dissertation aims to provide a history of aerospace engineering and mechanics in the post-modern era by describing the development of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics as well as some of the techniques used in modern engineering.Expand

This work is concerned with the study of flow stability and turbulence control - two old but still open problems of fluid mechanics. The topics are distinct and are (currently) approached from diff… Expand

In this chapter, we analyse the global variables of fluid dynamics to determine their association with space and time elements. We also present the two major balance equations, the mass and momentum… Expand

The mathematical model of a nonlinear, incompressible, bipolar viscous fluid was introduced in Sect. 1.6 and conforms to the constitutive hypotheses for the Cauchy stress tensor τ ij and the first… Expand
