2. ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY
This is a compact textbook for a module addressing rudimentary fluid mechanics within the context of applied energy systems. It is at an introductory level for engineers or technologists. The book does not attempt to cover the principles of fluid mechanics comprehensively. Rather, it provides a practical but theoretically sound foundation, linked to two key areas: hydrostatic power transmission systems and the flow of fluids through pipes and fittings. This selection allows the two areas to be presented in some detail. Through this approach learners can put the principles of fluid mechanics into context, while developing their knowledge and understanding. Thus, they are prepared for applying the same and similar principles to a much broader range of practical applications in the future. A separate solutions manual is provided.
