* Error-free. The authors have taken great pains to check the accuracy of all calculations throughout the text.
* Readability. This text has established a reputation for clarity and the ease with which students can grasp the material with minimal input from the instructor.
* Supporting Illustrations further support and facilitate student comprehension.
* Basic concepts are explained with physical arguments. A physical/visual approach aids the student in gaining an intuitive understanding of the principles of fluid dynamics.
* Numerous worked-out examples in the text. Students can use the examples as a basis for solving problems.
* Design problems. Applying theoretical principles in practical designs helps develop the student's engineering creativity.
* Appropriate coverage of mathematics: The text's treatment of mathematics is consistent with the capability of the typical undergraduate student. For example, the concept of irrotationality and the Bernoulli equation in irrotational flow is presented with a minimum use of partial differential equations. This concept is made more visual and comprehensible to the student. More advanced mathematical formulations are available in the text for use at the instructor's discretion.

Editorial Reviews

A textbook for an introductory course, focused on helping students get a feel for flow patterns, pressure variation, and shear stress in fluid flow. The first half is generally devoted to basic principles, though some practical applications are also demonstrated in the examples and problems. The second half surveys applications of the principals to engineering problems. The sixth edition includes new material on deriving the Navier- Stokes equation and the visualization of flow, extended discussion of other topics, and new and revised problems. No dates are noted for earlier editions. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
New edition of a text that guides readers from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications. Through physical descriptions, photographs, illustrations, and fully worked example problems, Crowe and John A. Roberson (Washington State U.) and Donald F. Elger (U. of Idaho) provide a way for students to get the feel for flow patterns, pressure variation, and shear stress in fluid flow. About 1,100 open-ended and computer-oriented problems relate to the application of fluid mechanics principles. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
