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 30 extended laboratory-type problems Actual experimental data for simple experiments in an Excel format 168 review problems.

Dr. Young has contributed to many technical publications and is the author or coauthor of two textbooks on applied mechanics. He is a fellow of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Munson, Bruce R. : Iowa State university

Bruce R. Munson, Professor Emeritus of Engineering Mechanics, has been a faculty member at Iowa State university since 1974. He received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from Purdue university and his Ph.D degree from the Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics Department of the university of Minnesota in 1970.

From 1970 to 1974, Dr.Munson was on the mechanical engineering faculty of Duke University. From 1964 to 1966, he worked as an engineer in the jet engine fuel control department of Bendix Aerospace Corporation, South Bend, Indiana.

Dr. Munson's main professional activity has been in the area of fluid mechanics education and research. He has been responsible for the development of many fluid mechanics courses for studies in civil engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering science, and agricultural engineering and is the recipient of an Iowa State university Superior engineering Teacher Award and the Iowa State University Alumni Association Faculty Citation.

He has authored and coauthored many theoretical and experimental technical papers on hydrodynamic stability, low Reynolds number flow, secondary flow, and the applications of viscous incompressible flow. He is a member of the American Society for Engineering Engineers, The American Physical Society, and the American society for Engineering Education.
