Known for its exceptionally readable approach, Crowe, Elger, and Robertson's ENGINEERING FLUID MECHANICS carefully guides readers from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications.

The Seventh Edition of this student-friendly text fosters a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through lucid physical descriptions, photographs, clear illustrations, and fully worked example problems. More than 1,100 problems, including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems, provide an opportunity to apply fluid mechanics principles. Throughout, the authors have meticulously reviewed all problems, solutions, and text material to ensure accuracy.

Enhancements and revisions to the Seventh EditionExpanded material on the analysis of hydrostatic forces on curved surfaces.New material on the concept of system, control volume, and control surface.Improved physical description f the concept of flow rotation.A simpler approach to the development of the Bernoulli equation.Revised chapter on the momentum equation, featuring force and momentum diagrams to visualize the concepts.Revised coverage of the use of the step-by-step method of dimensional analysis, making the approach considerably easier to understand and utilize.New material on error analysis in flow measurement.Summaries at the end of each chapter94 new and 310 revised problems (more than 1,100 problems in all).
