Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics (6TH 09 - Old Edition)by Bruce R. Munson
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
With the help of additional features, Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics helps mechanical and civil engineers connect the theory to the physical world. This is accomplished through more photos throughout the chapters that show fluid phenomena, new Fluids In the News articles, conceptual questions, and new problem types. Learning objectives are now included for each chapter. Examples that walk the reader step-by-step through the problem-solving methodology are presented. Life-long Learning problems have also been added that help mechanical and civil engineers think critically about a current topic and determine how it relates to problems in the book.
Book News Annotation:
First published in 1990 and here updated from the 2006 edition, the textbook introduces some fundamental aspects of fluid mechanics to junior and senior engineering students as a basis for more advanced graduate courses. Reflecting the growth of the visual in youth culture, the treatment is colorful and graphic, and the disk of previous editions has been replaced with access to the website. It covers fluid statics; elementary fluid dynamics and the Bernoulli equation; fluid kinematics; finite control volume analysis; differential analysis of fluid flow; dimensional analysis, similitude, and modeling; viscous flow in pipes; flow over immersed bodies; open-channel flow; compressible flow; and turbomachines. Answers are provided for even-numbered problems. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
The number one text in its field, Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is respected by professors and students alike for its comprehensive topical coverage, its varied examples and homework problems, its application of the visual component of fluid mechanics, and its strong focus on learning. The authors have designed their presentation to allow for the gradual development of student confidence in problem solving. Each important concept is introduced in simple and easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed.
Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
