Series: The Modern university physics series. Hardcover: 362 pages. This book is not ideal for mathematicians.

Series: The Modern university physics series. Publisher: Van Nostrand Reinhold In. U. It is written in the style of a physics book, with a large portion of the book devoted to experimental results; the theory is developed in the context of explaining these results, with little mathematical discussion of the resulting equations beyond asymptotic analysis. This may be expected, given the word "Physical" in the title. Overall it is a nice book. But the writing is not as clear as it could be.

Physical Fluid Dynamics The Modern University in Physics Series. I have often heard expressions of the need for such a book, and certainly I have feIt it in my own teaching. I have written it primariIy for students of physics and of physics-based applied science, aIthough I hope others may find it useful  .

The book differs from existing 'fundamental' books in placing much greater emphasis on what we know through laboratory experiments and their physical interpretation and less on the mathe­ matieal formalism. Paperback (01 Jan 1977) English. It differs from existing 'applied' books in that the choice of topics has been made for the insight they give into the behaviour of fluids in motion rather than for their practical importance. There are differences also from many existing books on fluid dynamics in the branches treated, reflecting to some extent shifts of interest in reeent years. Includes delivery to Russia.

Physical fluid dynamics (The Modern university physics series). This book presents the physics of incompressible flow for the benefit of students and others who need to understand fluid motion. Particular emphasis is given to information obtained by experiment and observation in addition to analysis of the equations of motion.

Geophysical fluid dynamics, in its broadest meaning, refers to the fluid dynamics of naturally occurring flows, such as lava flows, oceans, and planetary atmospheres, on Earth and other planets

Geophysical fluid dynamics, in its broadest meaning, refers to the fluid dynamics of naturally occurring flows, such as lava flows, oceans, and planetary atmospheres, on Earth and other planets. Two physical features that are common to many of the phenomena studied in geophysical fluid dynamics are rotation of the fluid due to the planetary rotation and stratification (layering).

To classify a book as 'experimental' rather than 'theoretical' or as 'pure' rather than 'applied' is liable to imply umeal distinctions. Nevertheless, some Classification is necessary to teIl the potential reader whether the book is for him. In this spirit, this book may be said to treat fluid dynamies as a branch of physics, rather than as a branch of applied mathematics or of engineering. I have often heard expressions of the need for such a book, and certainly I have feIt it in my own teaching. I have written it primariIy for students of physics and of physics-based applied science, aIthough I hope others may find it useful. The book differs from existing 'fundamental' books in placing much greater emphasis on what we know through laboratory experiments and their physical interpretation and less on the mathe­ matieal formalism. It differs from existing 'applied' books in that the choice of topics has been made for the insight they give into the behaviour of fluids in motion rather than for their practical importance. There are differences also from many existing books on fluid dynamics in the branches treated, reflecting to some extent shifts of interest in reeent years. In particular, geophysical and astrophysical applications have prompted important fundamental developments in topics such as conveetion, stratified flow, and the dynamics of rotating fluids. These developments have hitherto been reflected in the contents of textbooks only to a limited extent.
  • The best book ever written on fluid dynamics for physicists is the one by Landau and Lifshitz. But Landau & Lifshitz is not accessible to undergraduates. I know, I tried using it in class and created a revolution. David Tritton was a professor of physics at the University of Newcastle in the UK. They had a unique emphasis on geophysics and this book was written to help undergraduate physics majors. I consider it the leading book for such students.

  • If you are afraid of mathematics but want to learn fluid dynamics then this should be your choice. This book might not contain lots of mathematical equations a typical fluid dynamics book could have, but Tritton had explained certain concepts in fluid dynamics very clearly. This book gave me lots of insights and supplemented my pre-existing knowledge in the subject.

  • You must have this book in your bookshelf if you are a fluid-dynamicist. As the title suggests, it is about the physics of fluid dynamics.

  • This book is not ideal for mathematicians. It is written in the style of a physics book, with a large portion of the book devoted to experimental results; the theory is developed in the context of explaining these results, with little mathematical discussion of the resulting equations beyond asymptotic analysis. (This may be expected, given the word "Physical" in the title.)
    Overall it is a nice book. But the writing is not as clear as it could be. Some relevant properties of the example flows discussed are not stated explicitly, which I would discover by chance while working with the equations. Many of his derivations are also predicated by overly restrictive/unnecessary assumptions, with no mention of the behavior under other assumptions (although the problems require determining this in order to solve them). He leaves too much as an (often unstated) exercise for the reader. This is the reason I did not rate it five stars.

  • This book is one of the best books on fluid dynamics I have ever read. Definitely, it was written for phycisist looking for a deep understanding of the astonishing fluid behavior rather than for applications. The author carefully explains, with a lot of wonderful photographs and simple pictures, all the basic ideas and fundamental concepts behind fluid dynamics, ranging from the flow in a pipe, to atmospheric convection and solar granulation. I think that every physicist who wants to learn about the underlying physics of fluids, should read and enjoy this book.

  • I really enjoyed this book. I found it in a bookstore one day and read it for pleasure slowly. I am a theory student (now) so I wanted to see a lot more math, but aside from that shortcoming (which some might welcome) it was just a fantastic description of fluid motion and derivations of the governing equations on a simple level.

  • This book is indeed very good, as it presents deeper analysis of many fluids phenomena, departing from basic ideas and fundamental concepts. But in my opinion you must already have a good understanding of fluid mechanics to really enjoy it. I guess it would not be easy for a begginer in the matter, and guess that's why some may call it confusing. In fact, you won't find that current structured treatment of the matter that other books (mainly the textbooks) presents, or the contents of regular under-graduate or graduate courses in engineering, with common engineering applications, and so on. Nevertheless, as a teacher and researcher in the field of fluid mechanics, I really enjoyed reading it, and it really improved my understanding on many topics.

  • It's unbelievable how confusing a fluid mechanics book can be. Tritton achieved to present fluid mechanics in a way that only mathematicians (with usually no interest in fluid mechanics) can comprehend. If you need to really understand fluid mechanics and not to continuously deal with divergences and curls, better look for another book.
