Mechanics of Fluids – Irving Shames – 4th Edition

The new 4th lessens the amount of coverage, and concentrates on the topics covered in typical first courses in Fluid Mechanics, while remaining a rigorous introductory level fluids book with a strong conceptual approach to fluids based on mechanics principles. from Mechanical, Civil, Aero, and Engineering Science departments will benefit from this title.

Students find Shames, Mechanics of Fluids to be readable while having strong coverage of underlying math and principles. Shames’ book provides an especially clear link the basics of and advanced courses such compressible flow or viscous . It also includes Matlab applications for the first time, giving students a way to link fluid mechanics problem-solving with the most widely used computational & problem modeling tool.
