Summary

Includes analyses of numerous everyday examples of fluid flow phenomena that students and faculty can easily relate to. One hundred examples provide detailed solutions to a variety of problems. Homework problems in each chapter stress the practical application of principles. Extended laboratory-type problems are included in most chapters, along with actual experimental data. Students are asked to perform a detailed analysis of the problem similar to that required for a typical lab. A complete chapter on turbomachines treats the topic in a concise fashion with emphasis on the fluid mechanics fundamentals associated with turbomachines, particularly pumps and turbines. Examines the fundamental aspects of fluid motion, including important fluid properties, regimes of flow, pressure variations in fluids at rest and in motion, and methods of flow description and analysis. Covers 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.
