INTRODUCTION In previous chapters most flow problems considered fluids that are virtually incompressible, primarily water. Many flow problems, however, involve fluids that are compressible, such as air. As a general rule, gases are compressible whereas liquids are more or less incompressible. Analysis of compressible flow is often more complicated than that of incompressible flow because mass density varies with applied pressure in the case of compressible flow.
