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

Description

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

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