Based on the authors' highly successful text Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics, 3/e is a streamlined text, covering the basic concepts and principles of fluid mechanics in a modern style. The text clearly presents basic analysis techniques and addresses practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. Homework problems in every chapter - including open-ended problems, problems based on the CD-ROM videos, laboratory problems, and computer problems - emphasize the practical application of principles. More than 100 worked examples provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems.
This 2006 JustAsk! Edition incorporates the successful JustAsk! program being used throughout engineering in fluid mechanics, circuits, electromagnetics, engineering statistics, and other courses.
