By following a concise thematic organization, Principles of Fluid Mechanics covers the basic theory, physics, and applications of fluid flow from a general viewpoint that makes it easy for students to follow and understand. Introduces fluid mechanic concepts using the universality - and simplicity - of the conservation laws. Covers the material in a deductive manner by following a systematic, step-by-step approach. Reinforces the discussion and concepts through numerous example problems. Stresses the combined use of mathematical analysis and experimental and computer modeling in solving problems. Promotes an overall educational approach required by current engineering problems that are open-ended and multidisciplinary in nature.
