9780495438571: Mechanics of Fluids, SI Version

MECHANICS OF FLUIDS presents fluid mechanics so that students gain an understanding of and an ability to analyze the important phenomena encountered by practicing engineers. The authors succeed in this through the use of several pedagogical tools (Margin Notes, Chapter Outlines, Summaries, and a nomenclature list) that help students visualize the many difficult-to-understand phenomena of fluid mechanics. Potter and Wiggert base their explanations on basic physical concepts and mathematics which are accessible to undergraduate engineering students, such as differential equations and vector algebra.

Review:

"Good content coverage, very readable, written at the right level for our students, and good example problems and homework problems."

"It is clear, comprehensive, presents clear learning objectives at the beginning of each chapter, has a great number of problems at the end of each chapter, and highlights important information in the margin."

"Provides comprehensive coverage of core material. Worked examples are detailed and very good. Chapter on flow measurements is valuable and not common in most other FM books."
