9780071198899: Mechanics of Fluids (Mcgraw-Hill Series in Mechanical Engineering)

This 4th edition is a rigorous introductory level fluids book with a strong conceptual approach to fluids, based on mechanics principles. Students from mechanical, civil, aero, and engineering science departments will benefit from this title. Students find this book readable, while being provided with strong coverage of underlying math and physics principles. Shames' book provides an especially clear link between the basics of fluid flow, and subsequent to advanced courses such as compressible flow or viscous fluid flow. This new 4th edition lessens the amount of advanced coverage, and concentrates on the topics covered in typical first courses in Fluid Mechanics. It also includes Matlab applications for the first time, giving students a way to link fluid mechanics problem-solving with the most widely used computational and problem modeling tool.
