Overview

MECHANICS OF FLUIDS presents fluid mechanics so that readers gain an understanding of and an ability to analyze the important phenomena encountered by practicing engineers. The authors succeed in this through the use of several pedagogical tools (Margin Notes, Chapter Outlines, Summaries, and a nomenclature list) that help readers visualize the many difficult-to-understand phenomena of fluid mechanics.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A new edition of the text introducing the fundamental areas of fluid mechanics. The volume uses worked examples and practice problems to prepare students for actual engineering situations, comprehensively covering the areas of fluid statics, fluids in motion, the integral and differential forms of the fundamental laws, dimensional analysis and similitude, internal and external flows, flow in channels and in piping systems, turbomachinery, and measurements in fluid mechanics. The appendices supply conversions, tables of properties, and listings of related computer programs. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
