Fluid Flow Handbook

by: Jamal M. Saleh


Abstract: The most comprehensive reference available on fluid flow theory and application! An in-depth understanding of the theory and application of fluid flow is critical to every field of engineering, particularly civil, mechanical, and chemical. In Fluid Flow Handbook, hands-on expert Jamal Saleh skillfully blends theoretical review and engineering practicality to provide a resource unlike any other currently available to the field. The result is a balanced, detailed, and extensive treatment of pumps, pipes and piping systems, hydraulics, hydrology, and much more. Along with being meticulously written, well-illustrated, and completely up-to-date, Fluid Flow Handbook offers: • Practical examples, followed by short and precise theoretical explanations • Equations, charts, and tables to facilitate step-by-step calculation • Numerous applications from petroleum distribution, piping flow, and valves and other fittings • An integration between physical properties, thermodynamics, and heat transfer and fluid flow analysis • Discussion of issues critical to civil engineers, including flow in open channel, flow meters in rivers, discharge from hydraulic structures, and more • Coverage of other areas: nano/micro flow, flow assurance, molecular flow, biofluid flow, etc. If engineers involved with petroleum, water resources, chemical processing facilities, pipeline distribution systems, steam plant operation, and related areas could have only one book on fluid flow, this should be the book.
