Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics
Synopses & Reviews
A look at fundamental aspects of fluid motion, including important fluid properties, regimes of flow, pressure variations in fluids at rest and in motion, fluid kinematics, and methods of flow description and analysis. This book describes the essential elements of kinematics, including Eulerian and Lagrangian mathematical descriptions of flow phenomena, and indicates the vital relationship between the two views.
Book News Annotation:
A textbook for a junior or senior introductory course for engineering students. Selects material about the mature science to convey the fundamentals while illustrating every-day examples of fluid flow and the methods for analyzing them. Previously published in 1990 and 1994, and here augmented with a highlighted summary on each of the page of the material thereon, and chapter-end problems. Marks those problems that are best worked with a computer or programmable calculator, and those that require information from outside the classroom and various assumptions. Teacher support material is available.
