Multimedia Fluid Mechanics
Synopses & Reviews
Inspired by the reception of the first edition, the objectives in Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2/e remain to exploit the moving image and interactivity of multimedia to improve the teaching and learning of fluid mechanics in all disciplines by illustrating fundamental phenomena and conveying fascinating fluid flows for generations to come.
This completely new edition on DVD includes:
*Twice the coverage with new modules on Turbulence, Control Volumes, Interfacial Phenomena, and Similarity and Scaling
*Four times the number of fluids videos, now nearly 1000
*Now over 20 Virtual labs and simulations
*Dozens of new interactive demonstrations and animations
*Improved navigation via side bars that provide rapid overview of modules and guided browsing
*Media libraries of each chapter giving a snapshot of videos, each with descriptive labels
*Facility to create movie playlists, invaluable in teaching
*Higher resolution graphics, with full or part screen viewing options
*Operates on PC and Mac OSX.
The second edition of Multimedia Fluid Mechanics improves the learning of fluid mechanics by illustrating fundamental phenomena.
Inspired in large part by the very favorable reception of the first edition,Multimedia Fluid Mechanics 2/e continues to exploit the moving image and interactivity of multimedia to improve the teaching and learning of fluid mechanics by illustrating fundamental phenomena and conveying fascinating fluid flows.
About the Author
Merle C. Potter received his Ph.D. from The University of Michigan and is Professor Emeritus of Mechanical Engineering at Michigan State University. He retired early to write textbooks based on teaching Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics, Applied Mathematics, and related subjects. Dr. Potter's research included the stability of various fluid flows, separated flow around bodies, and energy conservation studies. He has authored and coauthored 34 textbooks and exam review books. He was the recipient of the 2008 ASME James Harry Potter Gold Medal. David C. Wiggert earned his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Michigan, and is Professor Emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Michigan State University. He was the recipient of the J.C. Stevens Award, ASCE, (1977), the L.F. Moody Award, ASME, (1983) and is a Fellow of ASME (1996). His research experience is in fluid transients and groundwater flows. Dr. Bassem Ramadan, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Kettering University. Ph.D. from Michigan State University in Mechanical Engineering, with expertise in Computational Fluid Dynamics, combustion, fluid flow analysis and modeling, thermal systems design and modeling, energy conservation and analysis. He was the recipient of an "Outstanding Teacher Award", an "Outstanding Applied Researcher Award", and an "Outstanding New Researcher Award" from Kettering University.
