A Heat Transfer Textbook
Access to the 3rd edition of this introduction to heat
and mass transfer oriented toward engineering students is
available at this site. The full text of the book may be
downloaded free of charge following registration. Revisions
are posted regularly.
Computational Fluid Dynamic Resources Online
Aims to provide an overview of the vast resources of electronic information
available to those working in computational fluid dynamics.
Details are given of academic institutions,
companies and organizations. A database of CFD related
projects is available, along with a database of people
working with CFD. Special topics addressed include:
turbulence; multigrid methods; mesh generation; adaptive
mesh refinement; discretization schemes; solution of linear
systems; finite element methods; and parallel computers.
e-Power and Propulsion
A speciality web portal designed to
serve as a free one-stop web information resource for anyone
working in the areas of propulsion, power, and combustion
research, education and directly related topics.
Contains news, useful tools for students and professionals, a research
funding news database, links to useful sites, journals and
magazines as well as an image gallery.
Provides free resources for Fluid Dynamics and Flow Engineering
eFunda: Engineering Fundamentals
Online publisher for original engineering
content and software. They offer over 30,000 pages of
engineering fundamentals and calculators.
Flownet from Engineering Design System Technology in San
Jose, California, is a Microsoft Windows-based
computer-aided engineering (CAE) program for calculating
fluid flow in a piping loop or network, handling
incompressible Newtonian single phase or vapor-liquid
Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulic and Environmental Engineering
: Dr. Hubert Chanson's Gallery of Photographs
More than 900 fully documented photographs of structures
and phenomena in the fields of fluid mechanics, hydraulic
and environmental engineering are available here in JPEG
format, provided by the Reader in Environmental Fluid
Mechanics and Water Engineering at the University of
Fluid Power Journal
The official publication of the Fluid Power Society, which is an international
organization for fluid power and related motion control
Fluid Power Net International
A worldwide network of fluid power research
laboratories. Its objective is to develop close research
co-operation between member laboratories and industry and
provide research facilities worldwide.
JET Impingement Database
The JET Impingement Database is a bibliographic database of
over 1500 abstracts from journals, theses, proceedings and
papers. It covers jet-impingement phenomena and engineering
applications for the transfer of energy and mass by evaporation
or sublimation by the action of a single-phase fluid on a solid
surface. Publications included are in English or are those
translated into English. It is updated on a regular basis.
Top Ten Links for Mechanical Engineering
Provides listing of top ten favorite mechanical engineering sites
according to TenLinks, Inc.
Virtual Album of
The virtual album of fluid motion is both a simulation
and visualization project for the numerical study of
stationary and nonstationary flows in two and three space
dimensions. It is based on the flow solver FEATFLOW 1.1 and
AVS 5.0 software from the FEAST Group in the Mathematics Department at the
University of Dortmund.
Wind Tunnels of NASA
Although wind tunnels are among the most important tools of
aeronautical research, this book suggests that these facilities
have remained the least understood. This may be partly because
the instrumentation and calibration are complicated and
difficult to understand and partly because the researchers that
use wind tunnels too often speak in language intended for their
peers and invented for their particular disciplines. Whatever
the reason, this book (NASA SP-440) aims to bridge the gap
between engineer and layman.
