## About This Book

This book leads readers from a basic foundation to an advanced-level understanding of fluid and solid mechanics. Perfect for graduate or PhD mathematical-science students looking for help in understanding the fundamentals of the topic, it also explores more specific areas such as multi-deck theory, time-mean turbulent shear flows, non-linear free surface flows, and internal fluid dynamics.

Fluid and Solid Mechanics is the second volume of the LTCC Advanced Mathematics Series. This series is the first to provide advanced introductions to mathematical science topics to advanced students of mathematics. Edited by the three joint heads of the London Taught Course Centre for PhD Students in the Mathematical Sciences (LTCC), each book supports readers in broadening their mathematical knowledge outside of their immediate research disciplines while also covering specialized key areas.

Contents:

- Introductory Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (Michael Davey)
- Multiple Deck Theory (S N Timoshin)
- Time-Mean Turbulent Shear Flows: Classical Modelling — Asymptotic Analysis — New Perspectives (Bernhard Scheichl)
- Nonlinear Free Surface Flows with Gravity and Surface Tension (J-M Vanden-Broeck)
- Internal Fluid Dynamics (Frank T Smith)
- Fundamentals of Physiological Solid Mechanics (N C Ovenden and C L Walsh)

Readership: Researchers, graduate or PhD mathematical-science students who require a reference book that covers fluid dynamics and solid mechanics.
