By Vivek Sharma VINE VOICE on May 7, 2005
Format: Paperback
Low Reynolds Number Hydrodynamics by Happel and Brenner is one of the most useful texts ever written (in the field of the same name), and is essential reading for everyone working in this area. This includes researchers studying motion of colloidal particles say during sedimentation or through NEMS devices, cell motility and motion of bacteria, microfluidics, microrheology of complex fluids, etc. The book first introduces the required concepts of Fluid Mechanics, and proceeds to detail the theorems and derivations of how Navier Stokes equation is simplified into creeping flow equations, the hydrodynamics of single particles of different shapes and sizes moving in unbounded fluid, the hydrodynamic interaction during motion of assembly of particles, the all effect and ends with a discussion of viscosity of particulate media.

The book contains a wealth of knowledge regarding the hydrodynamics of particulate media, and progressively introduces the effect on dynamics of the particles. It is very instrustive in the sense, that first the single particle dynamics is discussed. Then the effects of shapes and sizes are detailed. Next level of complexity is built in by looking at interaction between two spherical particles moving through a fluid. Then anisotropic bodies are discussed. The effect of walls, boundaries and multi-particles comes in next. A basic understanding of Fluid Mechanics (say of the order of Transport Phenomenon by Bird, Stewart and Lightfoot) is enough to get one started on discovering the beautiful word of Low Re Hydrodynamics.

However, the text was written and revised two-three decades back, and hence is a bit dated with respect to the range of applications covered and the cited references.

This book describes how to set up and solve the equations describing slow motion in viscous fluids. It covers a wide range of problems, but limited to simple geometries that allow analytic solutions. Readers should be familiar with differential equations and special functions in various coordinate systems. A long appendix helpfully summarizes the coordinate system notation used in the book. More diagrams would help readers better visualize the solutions presented. If you're looking for a more descriptive technical discussion of viscous flow, consider Dusenbery's "Living at Micro Scale".
