Fluid Mechanics – John F. Douglas, John A. Swaffield – 5th Edition

Written for courses in  Mechanics in Civil and Mechanical , this text covers the fundamental of fluid mechanics, as well as specialist topics in more depth. The fundamental material relates to all disciplines that require fluid mechanics.

As in previous editions this book demonstrates the link between theory and practice with excellent examples and programs. The programs help students perform 3 types of calculations; relatively simple calculations, calculations designed to provide solutions for steady state operation, and unsteady flow simulations.
