Summary: Basic Fluid Mechanics is an exciting and innovative junior/senior level text that provides an introduction to the basic concepts of fluid mechanics. It has also been used as an introductory text for graduate students with no prior knowledge of fluid mechanics. The book recognizes the fact that the modern fluid dynamicist has three research tools at his or her disposal, namely, analytical methods, experimentation and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). It makes full r moreecognition of this triad of approaches that constitute today's unified theory of fluid mechanics. Highlights of the book's special features are: Above all, the book has integrity in the sense that the book has a central theme revolving around the control-volume method, dimensional analysis, establishing logical problem-solving methods, and continually stressing the physics of fluid motion (as opposed to the disorganization that often grows out of a long series of revisions). It is accompanied by a two-volume, nearly 2,000-page, typeset, carefully-proofread solution manual developed by the author (as opposed to the common practice of having a graduate student prepare the solution manual). It presents an integrated, three-pronged approach of analytical, experimental and computational (CFD) methods for analyzing fluid-flow problems (as opposed to appending a stand-alone chapter on CFD). More than 1,000 homework problems ranging from straightforward to truly challenging, and sometimes humorous -- the problems are designed to stimulate abstraction (as opposed to solving by rote). Many of the CFD problems illustrate important points utilizing the programs supplied on the diskette supplied with the book. The treatment of key topics such as boundary layers, turbulence, separation, airfoil theory and CFD is carefully and thoughtfully done. It can be used for a two-course sequence in fluid mechanics. Each of the last 5 chapters include elements of CFD that Dr. Patrick J. Roache says are the "best of all possible topics that could possibly be included at this level." In their very first exposure to CFD, for example, students learn about Richardson extrapolation, Roache's Grid Convergence Index and the need for control of accuracy in CFD. Source code for all of the CFD examples is included on a disk included with the book. Solutions to odd-numbered problems are included on the CD that comes with the book. Downloadable updates the the file are available on line. less
