Fluid Mechanics, understanding and applying the principles of how motions and forces act upon fluids such as gases and liquids, is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. New to this third edition are expanded coverage of such important topics as surface boundary interfaces, improved discussions of such physical and mathematical laws as the Law of Biot and Savart and the Euler Momentum Integral. A very important new section on Computational Fluid Dynamics has been added for the very first time to this edition. Expanded and improved end-of-chapter problems will facilitate the teaching experience for students and instrutors alike. This book remains one of the most comprehensive and useful texts on fluid mechanics available today, with applications going from engineering to geophysics, and beyond to biology and general science.
* Ample, useful end-of-chapter problems.
* Excellent Coverage of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
* Coverage of Turbulent Flows.
* Solutions Manual available.

A basic but comprehensive introductory text on the fundamentals of fluid mechanics and applications in engineering and science.From the Back Cover:
Fluid mechanics is the science that studies the motions and forces acting on fluids such as gases and liquids.These motions are ubiquitous in the world around us,ranging in scale from the movements of single-celled micro-organisms such as paramecia to large-scale motions of the oceans or
atmosphere. Of particular interest is the calculation of the forces on the boundaries adjoining the fluid. This is the most comprehensive introductory graduate or advanced undergraduate text in fluid mechanics available. It builds up from the fundamentals, often in a very general way, to
widespread applications to technology and geophysics.
New to this second edition are discussions on the universal dimensionless similarity scaling for the laminar boundary layer equations and on the generalized vector field derivatives. In addition, new material on the generalized streamfunction treatment show how streamfunctions may be
used in three-dimensional flow. Finally, a new Computational Fluid Dynamics chapter enables computations of some simple flow and provides entrÃ©e to more advanced literature.
*New and generalized treatment of similar laminar boundary layers.
*Generalized treatment of streamfunctions for three-dimensional flow .
*Generalized treatment of vector field derivatives.
*Expanded coverage of gas dynamics.
*New introduction to computational fluid dynamics.
*New generalized treatment of boundary conditions in fluid mechanics.
*Expanded treatment of viscous flow with more examples.
