Fundamentals of fluid mechanics

Front Cover
Wiley, 2009 - Science - 725 pages
2 Reviews
The number one text in its field, Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is respected by professors and students alike for its comprehensive topical coverage, its varied examples and homework problems, its application of the visual component of fluid mechanics, and its strong focus on learning. The authors have designed their presentation to allow for the gradual development of student confidence in problem solving. Each important concept is introduced in simple and easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
