Through the centuries, the intricacies of fluid mechanics is the study of the laws of motion and fluids in motion, have occupied many of history's greatest minds. In this pioneering account, a distinguished aeronautical scientist presents a history of fluid mechanics focusing on the achievements of the pioneering scientists and thinkers whose inspirations and experiments lay behind the evolution of such disparate devices as irrigation lifts, ocean liners, windmills, fireworks and spacecraft. The development of fluid mechanics is briefly reviewed and the importance of fluid flows to heat and mass transport in nature as well as to science and engineering is outlined. The early theoretical developments are explained and it is indicated that the basic equations were available at the end of the 18th century. Methods to solve these equations for engineering flows were not, however, developed until the second half of the 20th century.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
Journal of Vortex Science and technology also comes under history of fluid mechanics. This is one of the Open access peer reviewed journal which deals about Fluid mechanics.
OMICS Group International through its Open Access Initiative is committed to make genuine and reliable contributions to the scientific community. OMICS Group hosts over 700+ peer-reviewed journals and organize over 3000+ International Scientific Conferences annually all over the world. OMICS International journals have over 15 million readers and the fame and success of the same can be attributed to the strong editorial board which contains over 50,000+ editorial board members that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process.
