Vocabulary of Mechanics, Volume 2: Group 15. Mechanics of Fluids provides information pertinent to the fundamental aspects of the mechanics of fluids. This book covers a variety of topics, including fluid mechanics, hydrostatics, aeromechanics, gas dynamics, aeroelasticity, and dynamic meteorology.

Organized into two parts encompassing 95 sections, this volume begins with an overview of the branch of mechanics dealing with the phenomena of fluids in motion and at rest. This text then deals with the geometrical description of the flow of matter, irrespectively of the forces producing the motion. Other sections consider the instantaneous motion of a fluid element wherein the motion is composed of translation of the center of mass of a fluid element. This book discusses as well the relative equilibrium of liquids. The final section deals with the atmospheric air motion caused by several factors.

This book is a valuable resource for engineers, scientists, and research workers.
