Hydraulics and Fluid Mechanics covers the proceedings of the First Australasian Conference. The book presents 29 papers that tackle several areas of concerns in fluid flow. The coverage of the text includes the behavioral aspects of fluid flow such as pressure drop and surge, gas pulsation, and cavitation. The book also discusses materials that cover methods in analyzing and estimating fluid flow variables, such as waterhammer analysis with nonlinear frictional resistance; estimation of hold-up at and below flooding; and analysis of shallow water wave patterns produced by a traveling model with straight and circular courses. The text will be of great use to researchers and professionals whose work concerns fluid flow.
