Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, 5th Edition is designed to cover the standard topics in a basic fluid mechanics course in a streamlined manner that meets the learning needs of today?s student better than the dense, encyclopedic manner of traditional texts. This approach helps students connect the math and theory to the physical world and practical applications and apply these connections to solving problems. The text lucidly presents basic analysis techniques and addresses practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. It offers a strong visual approach with photos, illustrations, and videos included in the text, examples and homework problems to emphasize the practical application of fluid mechanics principles

Synopsis:

Based on the authors' highly successful text Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, 5th Edition is a streamlined text, covering the basic concepts and principles of fluid mechanics in a modern style. The text clearly presents basic analysis techniques and addresses practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. Extra problems in every chapter including open-ended problems, problems based on the accompanying videos, laboratory problems, and computer problems emphasize the practical application of principles. More than 100 worked examples provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems.
