This reference book is recommended for use by engineers, scientists, and post-graduate students who are concerned with the measurement of thermophysical properties of fluids. The present book emphasizes laminar flow methods to measure thermophysical properties of liquids. The reader should have a minimal background in partial differential equations, boundary value problems, the theory of viscous incompressible flow, the mechanics of non- Newtonian fluids, and convection heat transfer.
The first chapter of this book comprises a review of the classical methods for the measurement of thermophysical properties of fluids....
