This edition helps students develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics by emphasizing the physics, using figures, numerous photographs and visual aids to reinforce the physics. The highly visual approach enhances the learning of fluid mechanics by students. This text distinguishes itself from others by the way the material is presented - in a progressive order from simple to more difficult, building each chapter upon foundations laid down in previous chapters.
This book has been written for the Fluid Mechanics undergraduate engineering course.
Subject matter is presented in a progressive order from simple to complex, building each chapter upon foundations laid down in earlier chapters. More diagrams and photographs are provided to help the student better visualise the real situations. Numerous worked-out examples clarify the material and illustrate the use of basic principles. The book encourages creative thinking and develops deeper understanding for fluid mechanics.
