Flow of Fluids
The transport of fluids through valves, hydraulic machinery and pipes is of general interest to the mechanical engineer, because, in the process of the movement of liquids, pressures are developed. This means that stresses are generated in the materials being used and consequently design becomes the important aspect. Storage of liquids is another engineering problem; this will not be the concern in this section, but consideration of storage cannot, in general, be ignored.
