This book, comprised of two volumes, is an extended and detailed analysis of both the flow phenomena in closed and open channels and the flows around solid bodies. Although emphasis is given to the real-life applications of flows, the theoretical background is set out in an appropriate and simple way, enabling the reader to deeply understand the connection between flow principles and their practical applications.

Volume 1 begins with a short reference to fluid statics together with some industrial applications, followed by an exploration of the flows inside pipes. This is presented with methodological steps for the solution and analysis of problems applicable to industrial situations.

This is a specialized resource for students, engineers and researchers who want to focus on the industrial applications of flows and study the fascinating world of internal and external flow phenomena.


1. Fundamental Principles in Fluids.
