Fluid Mechanics – Frank White – 5th Edition

The fifth edition of FLUID continues the tradition of precision, accuracy, accessibility and strong conceptual presentation. The author balances three separate approaches—integral, and experimental—to provide a foundation for fluid mechanics concepts and applications.

Chapter 1 now provides a more student-accessible introduction to the field. After covering the basics in the first six chapters, the author moves on to applications, with chapters on ducts, immersed bodies, potential flow, compressible flow, open channel flow and turbomachinery. New on CFD is included in Chapter 7 to give students a sense of its importance in modern engineering practice.

The fifth edition includes a new problem-solving methodology, introduced at the beginning of the and used consistently in worked-out examples. 1,650 chapter are now included, organized into several problem types.

Students can progress from ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage. Word problems are included to build readers’ conceptual understanding of the subject, and FE Exam problems (in multiple-choice format) are included.

A CD-ROM containing the Limited Academic Version of EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software is also included so that students can effectively use the computer to model, solve and modify typical fluid mechanics problems. Appendix E describes EES’ use and application to fluid mechanics.
