Written for courses in Fluid Mechanics in Civil and Mechanical Engineering, this text covers the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics, as well as specialist topics in more depth. The fundamental material relates to all engineering disciplines that require fluid mechanics. As in previous editions this book demonstrates the link between theory and practice with excellent examples and computer programs. The programs help students perform 3 types of calculations; relatively simple calculations, calculations designed to provide solutions for steady state system operation, and unsteady flow simulations.The most comprehensive student text available on the market. Suitable for all years of an undergraduate course in mechanical or civil engineering. Worked examples throughout. Start of chapter objectives and end of chapter summaries. Highlighted key equations - for easy reference. References to other books. List of symbols - for clarity and ease of use. Written entirely in SI (metric) units.Additional Support MaterialWorked examples backed up by self assessment questions.
