For undergraduate-level courses in Fluid Mechanics or Hydraulics in Mechanical, Chemical, and Civil Engineering Technology and Engineering programs. The most popular applications-oriented approach to engineering technology fluid mechanics, this text covers all of the basic principles of fluid mechanics-both statics and dynamics-in a clear, practical presentation that ties theory directly to real devices and systems used in chemical process industries, manufacturing, plant engineering, waste water handling and product design. Readable and clearly written, the new 6th edition brings a much more attractive appearance to the book and includes many updates and additional features.

With a wealth of updated coverage and a new two-color format that makes information even more interesting and accessible---here is the new Fourth Edition of the most-popular engineering technology fluid mechanics text. Here are all of the basic principles of fluid mechanics, both statics and dynamics, in a clear, practical presentation that ties theory directly to real devices and systems used in chemical process industries, manufacturing, plant engineering, waste water handling and product design. This edition incorporates the latest data on viscosity, introduces the use of the Swamee- Jain approach, to computing friction factors, and illustrates the latest pressure and flow devices available on the market. A unique presentation of the Moody diagram makes this complex diagram easy to use! A new graphic icon in the margins that highlights major formulae and definitions, and the use of a second color throughout, complete the revision. This text is well known for developing topics in a way students can easily follow...building one upon the other. Concepts are reinforced by a wealth of carefully-chosen practice problems-over 1,000 in all--and students learn fundamental principles through hands-on problem-solving, just as they will use them in the field.

This popular applications-oriented approach to engineering technology fluid mechanics covers all of the basic principles of fluid mechanics--both statics and dynamics--in a clear, practical presentation that ties theory directly to real devices and systems used in chemical process industries, manufacturing, plant engineering, waste water handling and product design. "The Big Picture" sections--focus on real products or systems where the principles of fluid mechanics are used, discuss the kind of fluid used, what the fluid is used for, how it behaves, what conditions exist in the system that affect its behavior, and the relationships between those systems. Features a "programmed approach" to completely worked, complex, real-world example problems; spreadsheets; a unique presentation of the Moody diagram; highlighted major formulae and definitions; and an extensive set of appendix tables. The Nature of Fluids. Viscosity of Fluids. Pressure Measurement. Forces on Submerged Plane and Curved Areas. Buoyancy and Stability. Flow of Fluids and Bernoulli's Equation. General Energy. Reynolds Number, Laminar Flow, and Turbulent Flow. Energy Losses Due to Friction. Minor Losses. Series Pipe Line Systems. Parallel Pipe Line Systems. Pump Selection and Application. Open Channel Flow. Flow Measurement. Forces Due to Fluids in Motion. Drag and Lift. Fans, Blowers, Compressors. Flow of Gases. Flow of Air in Ducts. For Mechanical, Manufacturing, and Industrial Engineers interested in Fluid Mechanics, Hydraulics, or Fluid Power.
