real fluid flow

real fluid flow

[′rēl ′flü·əd ‚flō]
(fluid mechanics)
The flow in which effects of tangential or shearing forces are taken into account; these forces give rise to fluid friction, because they oppose the sliding of one particle past another.

Covering first irrotational flow motion of an ideal fluid, then the theory and applications of real fluid flows, he discusses such topics as ideal fluid flows and irrotational flow motion; basic equations and flow analogies for two-dimensional flows; Joukowski transformation, the theorem of Kutta-Jourkowski, and lift force on an airfoil; and turbulence, and applying boundary layer theory to laminar boundary layer flows.
