**Basics of Fluid Mechanics**

by Genick Bar-Meir

2008**Number of pages**: 189

**Description**:

This book, Basics of Fluid Mechanics, describes the fundamentals of fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructorâ€™s notes for the fluid mechanics in
undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.

**Exploring the Biofluiddynamics of Swimming and Flight**

by

**David Lentink**-

**Wageningen University**

Many organisms move through water or air in order to survive and reproduce. It is useful to analyze fluid motion as a collection of vortices: vortices interact with the moving organism, interact with each other, and evolve independently in time.

**The Secret of Sailing**

by

**Johan Hoffman, Johan Jansson, Claes Johnson**

This book presents a mathematical theory of sailing based on a combination of analysis and computation. This new theory is fundamentally different from that envisioned in the classical theories for lift in inviscid flow and for drag in viscous flow.
