Synopses & Reviews
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.
Synopsis
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.
