A concise resource that presents a physics-based introduction to fluid dynamics and helps students bridge the gap between mathematical theory and real-world physical properties

Introduction to Fluid Dynamics offers a unique physics-based approach to fluid dynamics. Instead of emphasizing specific problem-solving methodologies, this book explains and interprets the physics behind the theory, which helps mathematically-inclined students develop physical intuition while giving more physically-inclined students a better grasp of the underlying mathematics. Real-world examples and end-of-chapter practice problems are included to further enhance student understanding.

Written by a highly-qualified author and experienced educator, topics are covered in a progressive manner, enabling maximum reader comprehension from start to finish. Sample topics covered in the book include:
* How forces originate in fluids
* How to define pressure in a fluid in motion
* How to apply conservation laws to deformable substances
* How viscous stresses are related to strain rates
* How centrifugal forces and viscosity play a role in curved motions and vortex dynamics
* How vortices and centrifugal forces are related in external viscous flows
* How energy is viscously dissipated in internal viscous flows
* How compressibility is related to wave and wave speed

Students and instructors in advanced undergraduate or graduate fluid dynamics courses will find immense value in this concise yet comprehensive resource. It enables readers to easily understand complex fluid phenomena, regardless of the academic background they come from.

Young J. Moon is a Professor in the School of Mechanical Engineering at Korea University, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on fluid dynamics, aeroacoustics, and biomedical fluid mechanics. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, and has previously held positions at RWTH Aachen University, École Nationale Supérieure d'Arts et Métiers Paris, Florida State University, and NASA's Lewis Research Center. He has also contributed chapters to several books published by Springer and Elsevier.
