2 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ascher H. Shapiro uses models and experiments to introduce concepts of continuous fluid, density and velocity at a point, body forces, surface forces, pressure, pressure gradient, viscous stress, and viscosity. He discusses the equation of fluid motion, limiting cases of low and high viscosity, Reynolds number and dynamical similarity, pressure drag, friction drag, and total drag

The fluid dynamics of drag(
Visual
)
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Ascher H. Shapiro performs experiments to show that in a certain range of speeds the drag of a sphere decreases as the speed increases, that at low speed a smooth sphere has less drag than a rough sphere, but that at high speeds, the reverse is true, and that streamlining reduces drag in air, but increases drag in glycerine

Friction coefficients in the inlet length of smooth round tubes by
Ascher H Shapiro(
Book
)
3 editions published between 1947 and 1948 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Results are reported in terms of the apparent friction coefficient, which is a measure of the pressure drop and which includes the effects of both friction and of changes in momentum flux associated with changes in velocity profile. Comparisons are made between experimental results and various theories that consider rate of development of the velocity profile. The results indicate that the developing boundary layer is first laminar and subsequently becomes turbulent. A method for predicting the discharge coefficients of flow nozzles is presented
