One-Dimensional Compressional Flow

Length: 156 pages2 hours


One-dimensional Compressible Flow is an introduction to compressible flow. The book covers the main concepts from thermodynamics and fluid mechanics, including the continuity and momentum equations and the laws of thermodynamics; the steady flow with area change, friction, or heat transfer; and the one-dimensional steady flow. The text also gives an introduction to the method of characteristics for solving unsteady flow problems. Charts and tables are provided in the book for performing steady flow calculations. The book is useful to students pursuing a degree course in mechanical engineering and practicing mechanical engineer.
