An creation to Mechanical Engineering: half 2 is a vital textual content for all second-year undergraduate scholars in addition to these learning origin levels and HNDs. The textual content offers thorough insurance of the next middle engineering topics:

  1. Fluid dynamics
  2. Thermodynamics
  3. Solid mechanics
  4. Control idea and techniques
  5. Mechanical strength, rather a lot and transmissions
  6. Structural vibration

As good as mechanical engineers, the textual content may be hugely suitable to car, aeronautical/aerospace and normal engineering students.

The fabric during this booklet has complete pupil and lecturer help on an accompanying web site at, which includes:

  • worked suggestions for exam-style questions
  • multiple-choice self-assessment
  • revision material

The textual content is written through an skilled group of academics on the across the world well known college of Nottingham.

(1) Obtain the Reynolds number of the flow around the chimney, assuming that the velocity of the storm winds is uniform along the chimney. Is the flow laminar or turbulent at this Reynolds number? (2) Estimate the frequency of the vortex shedding from the chimney. 225 Therefore, the flow around the chimney is turbulent.

White, 2008, Fluid Mechanics, New York: McGraw Reproduced with permission The McGraw-Hill An Hill. 33 An Introduction to Mechanical Engineering: Part 2 Barking Dog Art Fluid dynamics Hydraulic diameter When the pipes and ducts are not circular, we can use the hydraulic diameter Dh in place for the diameter of the circular pipe to calculate pipe losses. 64) With this concept, we can obtain the friction factor of non-circular pipes and ducts using the Moody chart just as we have obtained the friction factor for a circular pipe from it.

Although they are called minor losses, the pressure drops can be a significant part of the total pressure drop when the pipe or duct has a short straight section. 61) where, K is the minor loss coefficient or the K-factor. 26, where the flow direction changes through a circular and square bend. Both flows are separated at the bend, but the degree of flow separation and the turbulence being produced are very different. The turbulence is much greater in a flow through a square bend than through a circular bend.
