Introduction to Fluid Mechanics – Fox and McDonald’s – 5th Edition

Fox & McDonald provide a balanced and comprehensive approach to that arms readers with proven problem-solving methodology! The authors show how to develop an orderly plan to solve problems: starting from basic , then clearly stating assumptions, and finally, relating results to expected . This new edition simplifies many of the steps involved in by using the computer application Excel.

This successful book presents the fundamentals of fluid mechanics clearly and succinctly. Knowledge of fluid flow is essential to industries involving heat transfer, chemical processes, and aerodynamics. The book makes use of a problem-solving methodology and includes outstanding example problems. Topics covered are flow fields; potential and boundary layer ; Bernoulli’s Equation, Dimensional Analysis.

The text emphasizes the physical concepts of fluid mechanics and methods of analysis, beginning from first principles. In helping readers develop a more orderly approach to problem solving, the book starts from basic equations, states all assumptions clearly, and relates results to expected physical behavior with the aid of 103 example problems. The third edition features the use of SI units in approximately 70% of the more than 1,100 problems, 500 of which are new.
