Fluid Mechanics and Hydraulic Machines
By the end of this chapter, the student will be able:
- To understand the basic concepts of fluid mechanics and the force analysis
- To describe the construction details, design, and working of hydraulic turbines
- To describe the construction details, design, and working of hydraulic pumps
- To demonstrate the working of hydraulic coupling and torque converter
Engineering mechanics can be divided into three parts—mechanics of the rigid body, mechanics of solids, and mechanics of fluids. In the Mechanics of rigid body, it is assumed that there is no internal deformation in the body and we study about the static and dynamic position of the body ...
