About this title


Retaining the extremely student-friendly format that has made this textbook a popular classic, the authors have changed their latest edition by adding new subject matter on critical flow and hydraulic jump in channels of non-rectangular cross section; spillways; flow in streams at flood stage and flow resistance in rock-bedded streams. Includes expanded material on flow in culverts, sewers and pipe networks; water surface profiles and flow over broad-crested weirs. Contains 88 fresh problems and 177 revised problems.

From the Back Cover:

Always accurate and accessible

Known for its exceptionally readable approach, Crowe, Elger, and Robertson's ENGINEERING FLUID MECHANICS carefully guides readers from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications.

The Seventh Edition of this student-friendly text fosters a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through lucid physical descriptions, photographs, clear illustrations, and fully worked example problems. More than 1,100 problems, including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems, provide an opportunity to apply fluid mechanics principles. Throughout, the authors have meticulously reviewed all problems, solutions, and text material to ensure accuracy.

Enhancements and revisions to the Seventh Edition

  • Expanded material on the analysis of hydrostatic forces on curved surfaces.
  • New material on the concept of system, control volume, and control surface.
  • Improved physical description f the concept of flow rotation.
  • A simpler approach to the development of the Bernoulli equation.
  • Revised chapter on the momentum equation, featuring force and momentum diagrams to visualize the concepts.
  • Revised coverage of the use of the step-by-step method of dimensional analysis, making the approach considerably easier to understand and utilize.
  • New material on error analysis in flow measurement.
  • Summaries at the end of each chapter
  • 94 new and 310 revised problems (more than 1,100 problems in all).

Store Description

The books listed on ABE are not always available in our stores. Please do not call our store locations for these items. With 3 stores less than 1 hour outside the DC/Metropolitan area (1 in Gaithersburg, 1 in Frederick and 1 in Hagerstown, MD), we have the largest selection of books in the tri-state area. Wonder Book and Video has been in business since 1980 and online since 1997. We have over 1 Million books for sale on our website and another 1 Million books for sale in our 3 locations. We have a very active online inventory and as such, we can receive multiple orders for the same item. We fill those orders on a first come first serve basis, but will refund promptly any items that are out of stock. Since 1980 it has always been about the books. ALL kinds of books from 95 cent children's paperbacks to five figure rare and collectibles. A merging of the old and new is where we started, and it is where we are today. Our retail stores have always been places where a reader can rush in looking for a title needed for a term paper that is due the next day, or where bibliophiles can get lost "in the stacks" for as long as they wish. In 2002 USAToday recognized us as "1 of 10 Great Old Bookstores", and we have been featured in numerous other newspaper and TV stories including Washington Post and CSpan. Members ABAA, ILAB.
