Summary

An authoritative, mainstream presentation of the physical concepts and mathematics of fluid mechanics.

Reinforces concepts with equations and solutions for relatively simple geometries.

Offers a concise, yet thorough presentation of the control volume forms of fundamental laws.

Develops the differential equations that describe fluid flow.

Introduces internal and external flows, boundary layers and inviscid flows with numerous applications.

All derivations have easy-to-follow steps.

Includes an abundance of examples and worked problems

Emphasizes SI units, but approximately one-quarter of the worked examples and problems are duplicated using English units, and all properties and dimensional constants are provided in both SI and English units.

Provides computer-based Basic and spread sheet solutions in the chapters relating to open channel and pipe network flows.

Computer algorithms, figures, and tables are also provided on a CD-ROM that accompanies the Solutions Manual.

NEW--Provides an increase in the number of problems at the end of each chapter by as much as 50 percent.

NEW--Additional material in numerous sections that enhances or expands the derivations and applications.

NEW--Includes the pressure variation normal to stream-lines in Chapter 3.

NEW--Includes the addition of a section on fluid transients to Chapter 11.

NEW--Provides a thorough introduction to environmental fluid mechanics in Chapter 14, where the emphasis is on mass transport in surface water systems that contain turbulent flows. This chapter could function as an introduction or background in a graduate course on environmental system dynamics.
