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.

An authoritative, mainstream presentation of the physical concepts and mathematics of fluid mechanics.From the Back Cover:
Key Benefit: This book presents an authoritative, mainstream introduction to the physical concepts and mathematics of fluid mechanics. Key Topics: The book reinforces concepts with equations and solutions for relatively simple geometrics through an abundance of examples, worked problems, and derivations with easy-to-follow steps. Although the book emphasizes SI units, approximately one-quarter of the worked examples and problems are duplicated with English units, and all properties and dimensional constants are provided in both SI and English units. It also includes computer-based Basic and spread sheet solutions in the chapters relating to open channel and pipe network flows. Includes a thorough introduction to environmental fluid mechanics in Chapter 14, where the emphasis is on mass transport in surface water systems that contain turbulent flows. In addition, a section on fluid transients has been added to Chapter 11. Market: A valuable resource book for any practicing engineer seeking further understanding of fluid mechanics as it relates to civil, environmental, mechanical, or general engineering.
