A Brief Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
Now readers can quickly learn the basic concepts and principles of modern fluid mechanics with this concise book. It clearly presents basic analysis techniques while also addressing practical concerns and applications, such as pipe flow, open-channel flow, flow measurement, and drag and lift. The fourth edition also integrates detailed diagrams, examples and problems throughout the pages in order to emphasize the practical application of the principles.
