Overview

In this Sixth edition, Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics helps mechanical and civil engineers connect the theory to the physical world. This is accomplished through more photos throughout the chapters that show fluid phenomena, new Fluids In the News articles, conceptual questions, and new problem types. Learning objectives are now included for each chapter. Examples that walk the reader step-by-step through the problem-solving methodology are presented. Life-long Learning problems have also been added that help mechanical and civil engineers think critically about a current topic and determine how it relates to problems in the book.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for a junior or senior introductory course for engineering students. Selects material about the mature science to convey the fundamentals while illustrating every-day examples of fluid flow and the methods for analyzing them. Previously published in 1990 and 1994, and here augmented with a highlighted summary on each of the page of the material thereon, and chapter-end problems. Marks those problems that are best worked with a computer or programmable calculator, and those that require information from outside the classroom and various assumptions. Teacher support material is available. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

    One of the best Books in Fluid Mechanics!

    It discusses every concept in details, and it has a lot of real life examples. Recommended!
