From the Publisher:

This compact, contemporary, student-friendly book consists of examples and text involving everyday situations to reinforce the concept that fluid mechanics is an important part of our world as well as enabling students to master problem solving skills. Comprised of 10 chapters, the book contains more than enough material for a comprehensive one-semester course. Nearly one hundred examples are presented that provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. Also, a generous set of homework problems in each chapter stresses the practical application of principles. In addition, several open-ended problems that do not provide all the information required to solve the problem are included in most chapters. Another feature is the inclusion of extended, laboratory-type problems in most chapters.

From the Back Cover:

Stay Focused on the Fundamentals Concise and focused—these are the two guiding principles of Young, Munson, and Okiishi’s Second Edition of A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics. With this compact, student-friendly text, readers can master fundamental concepts, without getting lost in peripheral material. The authors clearly present basic analysis techniques and address 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. And more than 100 worked examples provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. The Second Edition offers several new features and enhancements, including:

  • A new CD-ROM, presenting video segments of fluid flow phenomena
  • Many new homework problems
  • A new chapter on turbo machines
Experience fluid flow phenomena in action on a new CD-ROM! A new Fluid Mechanics Phenomena CD-ROM, package with this text, presents videos of more than 70 real-life fluid mechanics situations. Throughout the text, icons will lead you to relevant video segments. You’ll also find many new end-of-chapter problems that are directly related to the videos.
