Is the blade-less wind turbine physically efficient

Technical fluid mechanics

This text and exercise book dispenses with higher mathematics and offers a very practice-oriented and easily understandable presentation. It is limited to the essential basics and, with its 250 calculated examples and tasks with solutions, offers comprehensible engineering applications and the possibility of good learning success control. The current edition has been made linguistically more understandable, the aerodynamics section has been updated and the solution notes for Chapter 2 have been added.

The content
Basic terms - Bernoulli's equation for steady flow - Theorem of momentum and swirl law for steady flow - Spatial frictionless flows - Law of friction for fluids - Similarity of flows - The boundary layer - Pipe flow and pressure loss - Resistance of bodies flowing around - Flow around wings - Flow of compressible fluids - Unsteady flow in pipelines - Numerical solution of flow problems (CFD)

The target groups
- Students at technical schools in mechanical engineering
- Students at technical colleges of mechanical engineering, process engineering and chemical engineering as well as at higher technical institutes
- Engineers in practice who need to acquire knowledge of technical fluid dynamics
