View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Are You Ready to See Fluid Mechanics In Action? This text comes with a free Fluid Mechanics Phenomena CD-ROM that brings fluid mechanics to life! It contains a series of short video segments that illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics. Many of the segments show how fluid motion is related to familiar devices and everyday experiences. Each segment also clearly indicates the key fluid mechanics topic being demonstrated and provides a description of the content. Throughout the text you'll find a special video icon that will let you know when it is appropriate to view a particular video clip. The numbering system will indicate which clip is relevant to the fluid mechanics concepts and theory under discussion.

Also Available: The Student Solutions Manual-Easy-to-use study tool with detailed solutions to Review Problems found at the end of each chapter in the text. Wiley: Creating the Future of Engineering Education.

From the Back Cover:

Dive right into everyday examples, practical problems, and a new e-text!

With its effective pedagogy, everyday examples, and outstanding collection of practical problems, it's no wonder Munson, Young,and Okiishi's FUNDAMENTALS OF FLUID MECHANICS is the best-selling fluid mechanics text. In each new edition, the authors have refined their primary goal of helping you develop the skills and confidence you need to master the art of solving fluid mechanics problems.

This new Fourth Edition includes a free CD-ROM containing the e-text-the entire print component of the book in searchable PDF format, plus a chapter on Turbomachines and additional material not in the print version. Within the PDF pages, hyperlinks allow you to quickly navigate from the list of key concepts to where they are explained in the text, and to the glossary.

The e-Text also features:

  • Review problems that link problems with answers and complete worked-out solutions. The Review Problems are identified by the basic principle they demonstrate, enabling you to quickly reference areas you need to review.
  • 30 Extended laboratory problems that involve actual experimental data for simple experiments. The data for these problems is provided in Excel format.
  • Links to Fluids Phenomena videos, which illustrate various aspects of real-world fluid mechanics.
  • Key Words and Topics linked directly to where those concepts are explained in the chapter.

About the Author:

Bruce R. Munson, Professor of Engineering Mechanics at Iowa State University since 1974, received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Purdue University and his Ph.D. degree from the Aerospace A Engineering and Mechanics Department of the University of Minnesota in 1970.

From 1970 to 1974, Dr. Munson was on the mechanical engineering faculty of Duke University. From 1964 o 1966, he worked as an engineer in the jet engine fuel control department of bendix Aerospace Corporation, South Bend, Indiana.

Dr. Munson's main professional activity has been in the area of fluid mechanism education and research. He has been responsible for the development of many fluid mechanics courses for studies in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering science, and agricultural engineering and is the recipient of an Iowa State University Superior Engineering Teacher Award and the Iowa State University Alumni Association Faculty Citation.

He has authored and coauthored many theoretical and experimental technical papers on hydrodynamic stability, low Reynolds number flow, secondary flow, and the applications on hydrodynamic stability, low Reynolds number flow, secondary flow, and the applications of viscous incompressible flow. He is a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and The American Physical Society.

Donald F. Young, Anson Marston Distinguished Professor Emeritus in Engineering, is a Faculty member in the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics at Iowa State University. Dr. young received his B.S. degree in mechanical engineering, his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in theoretical and applied mechanics from Iowa State, and has taught both undergraduate and graduate courses in fluid mechanics for many years. In addition to being named a Distinguished Professor in the College of engineering, Dr. Young has also Received the Standard Oil Foundation Outstanding Teacher Award and the Iowa State University Alumni Association Faculty Citation. He has been engaged in fluid mechanics research for more than 35 years, with special interest in similitude and modeling and the interdisciplinary field o biomedical fluid mechanics. Dr.. Young has contributed to many technical publications and is the author or coauthor of two textbooks on applied mechanics. He is a fellow of the American society of Mechanical Engineers.

Theodore H. Okiishi, Associate Dean of Engineering and past Chair of Mechanical engineering at Iowa State university, has taught fluid mechanics courses there since 1967. He received his undergraduate and graduate degrees at Iowa State.

Form 1965 to 1967, Dr. Okiishi served as a U.S. Army officer with duty assignments at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Lewis Research Center, Cleveland, Ohio, where he participated in rocket nozzle heat transfer research, and at the combined Intelligence Center, Saigon, Republic of south Vietnam, where he studied seasonal river flooding problems.

Professor Okiishi is active in research on turbomachinery fluid dynamics. He and his graduate students and other colleagues have written a number of journal articles based on their studies. some of these projects have involved significant collaboration with government and industrial laboratory researchers with two technical papers winning the ASME Melville Medal.

Dr. Okiishi has received several awards for teaching. He has developed undergraduate and graduate courses in classical fluid dynamics as well as the fluid dynamics of turbomachines.

He is a licensed professional engineer. His technical society activities include having been chair of the board of directors of The American society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) International Gas Turbine Institute. He is a Fellow of  The American Society of (ASME) International  Gas Turbine Institute. He is a Fellow of The American society of Mechanical Engineers and the editor of the Journal of Turbomachinery.
