REFERENCES: FLUID FLOW


ME 303 FLUID DYNAMICS/ WESTPHAL/ WSU/ FALL 1998


Here's an engineering students' reference list concerning fluid dynamics, including aerodynamics but mostly neglecting multi-phase/creeping/porous media flows. The list represents a compendium of things I've found useful and/or interesting over the years in engineering teaching, consulting, and research. I own copies of many of the books listed, and can usually loan them to students; some are in the WSU Library's collection (most at Owen Science Library).

If you want to buy a NEW book on the 'net, try Amazon Books. For access to a huge stock of both new and especially USED books, try Powell's Books (technical bookstore number is 503/228-3906). Powell's will ship UPS and charge your credit card.

Dover (write for catalog: Dept 23, Dover Publications, 31 East 2nd Street, Mineola, NY 11501) and Cambridge University Press provide very low-cost paperback books -- you can buy these direct from the publisher, or order through most any bookstore. Government reports will someday be available in full text, on-line... until then, low-cost copies can be obtained from National Technical Information Service (NTIS: 703/487-4650); for NASA publications you can use the Center for Aerospace Information (CASI: 301/621-0394). Technical societies (such as ASME and ASHRAE) also sell their publications direct, and usually at a large discount to members.

In addition to this list, see the Computer Resources list for access to on-line books by James Fay (introductory fluid dynamics) and Ilan Kroo (aerodynamics).

REFERENCE BOOKS AND ENGINEERING DATA HANDBOOKS

Crane Technical Paper No. 410, Crane Valve Company. This is a "must have" for any professional design work. Price: $30 -- to order call Crane at 1-800-323-3679. Crane Companion software can be obtained which makes the famed Crane TP 410 data available on your computer. If you could only take one Fluids-related reference to the M. E. Professional Engineer's License Exam, this would probably be it.

Fluid Dynamic Drag, S. F. Hoerner, 1965, and Fluid Dynamic Lift, S. F. Hoerner, H. V. Borst, 1985. These fantastic reference books are only available from Hoerner Fluid Dynamics, P.O. Box 65283, Vancouver WA 98665 (360)576-3997.

Flow Resistance - A Design Guide for Engineers, E. Fried and I. E. Idelchik, Hemisphere 1989. Compiled from years of Russian research

ASHRAE HVAC Systems and Equipment Handbook, American Society for Heating and Refrigeration Engineers, 1996.
ASHRAE Fundamentals Handbook, American Society for Heating and Refrigeration Engineers, 1997. Definitive source for moist air properties and many other goodies. ASHRAE members get these heavily used references for LOTS less than non-members.

ASME Steam Tables, by C. A. Meyer, R. B. McClintock, G. J. Silvestri, and R. C. Spencer Jr., American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Sixth Ed., 1993. The definitive reference on thermodynamic and transport properties of water in all phases. Includes PC software. ASME members get this at about half price.
