Multimedia Fluid Mechanics Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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

New features:

*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.

Synopsis:

The second edition of Multimedia Fluid Mechanics improves the learning of fluid mechanics by illustrating fundamental phenomena.

Synopsis:

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.
