Fluid Mechanics provides a comprehensive treatment of the essentials of the subject for students of mechanical, chemical or civil engineering and building services or environmental engineering. Well established as the key textbook in the field, this third edition has been substantially updated and improved in line with today's courses. As in previous editions the reader is guided from the general to the particular, introduced to the basic "building block" equations and shown their application and development through a series of increasingly specialized topics. The breadth of coverage is wide-ranging, covering both bounded and free surface flow conditions, and fluid mechanics is treated as a truly cross-disciplinary topic within engineering.

From the Back Cover:

The previous three editions have established Fluid Mechanics as the key textbook in its field. This fourth edition continues to offer the reader an excellent and comprehensive treatment of the essentials of what is a truly cross-disciplinary subject, while also providing in-depth treatment of selected areas. This book is suitable for all students of civil, mechanical, chemical, environmental and building services engineering.

The fourth edition retains the underlying philosophy of the previous editions - guiding the reader from the general to the particular, from fundamentals to specialist applications - for a range of flow conditions from bounded to free surface and steady to time dependent. The basic `building block' equations are identified and their development and application to problems of considerable engineering concern are demonstrated and discussed.

The fourth edition of Fluid Mechanics includes:

· end of chapter summaries outlining all essential concepts,

· an entirely new chapter on the simulation of unsteady flow conditions, from free surface to air distribution networks,

· enhanced treatment of dimensional analysis and similarity and an introduction to the fundamentals of CFD,

· worked examples backed up by self assessment questions and a comprehensive downloadable Solutions Manual,

· a completely new series of computer simulations on CD-ROM covering the entire range of the text, thereby supporting student centered learning.
Fluid Mechanics is ideal for use throughout a first degree course in all disciplines where an understanding of this subject is essential to the student. It is also suitable for conversion MSc courses requiring a fundamental treatment of fluid mechanics and will be a valuable resource for specialist Continuing Professional Development courses, including those offered by Distance Learning.
