This concise and comprehensive book covers the basic concepts and principles of modern fluid mechanics. It examines the fundamental aspects of fluid motion including important fluid properties, regimes of flow, pressure variations in fluids at rest and in motion, methods of flow description and analysis. It expands on basic analysis techniques used to solve fluid mechanics problems, and stresses how flow phenomena are described mathematically, and when and how to use infinitesimal and finite control volumes.

From the Publisher:

This compact, contemporary, student-friendly book consists of examples and text involving everyday situations to reinforce the concept that fluid mechanics is an important part of our world as well as enabling students to master problem solving skills. Comprised of 10 chapters, the book contains more than enough material for a comprehensive one-semester course. Nearly one hundred examples are presented that provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. Also, a generous set of homework problems in each chapter stresses the practical application of principles. In addition, several open-ended problems that do not provide all the information required to solve the problem are included in most chapters. Another feature is the inclusion of extended, laboratory-type problems in most chapters.

From the Back Cover:

STAY FOCUSED ON THE FUNDAMENTALS

Concise and focused-these are the two guiding principles of Young, Munson, and Okiishi's Third Edition of A BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO FLUID MECHANICS.

The authors clearly present basic analysis techniques and address practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. Homework problems in every chapter-including open-ended problems, problems based on the CD-ROM videos, laboratory problems, and computer problems-emphasize the practical application of principles. More than 100 worked examples provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems.

The Third Edition offers several new features and enhancements, including:

  • A variety of new simple figures in the margins that will help you visualize the concepts described in the text.
  • Chapter Summary and Study Guide sections at the end of each chapter that will help you assess your understanding of the material.
  • Simplified presentation of the Reynolds transport theorem.
  • New homework problems added to every chapter.
  • Highlighted key works in each chapter.

Experience fluid flow phenomena in action on a new CD-ROM! The Fluid Mechanics Phenomena CD-ROM packaged with this text presents 75 short video segments that illustrate various aspects of fluid mechanics. In addition, this CD now features 30 extended laboratory-type problems, which involve actual experimental data for simple experiments in an Excel format, as well as a set of 168 review problems.
