This book communicates directly with tomorrow’s engineers in a simple but accurate way. The text covers the basic principles and equations of fluid mechanics in the context of numerous and diverse engineering examples from the real world. Helps students develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics, emphasizing physics; provides attractive figures and many photographs as a visual medium to reinforce physics.
This text is distinguished from the others by the way in which the material is presented – in a progressive order from the simple to the most difficult, the construction of each chapter on bases established in the previous chapters. In this way, even the traditionally difficult aspects of fluid mechanics can be learned effectively.
