Fluid Statics

  • Hongqing Song


Fluid statics focuses on equilibrium problems of forces exerting on a motionless fluid and corresponding application in practical situations. In this chapter, we will first discuss Eulerian equilibrium equation of fluids and its integral. In addition, we will introduce pressure calculation and measurement. Finally, according to the principles of pressure distribution, we can calculate forces acting on a plate.
