## Applied Fluid Mechanics"Applied Fluid Mechanics covers all of the basic principles of fluid mechanics - both statics and dynamics - in a clear, practical presentation that ties theory directly to real devices and systems used in chemical process industries, manufacturing, plant engineering, wastewater handling, and product design. Included is an extensive Appendix that serves as a useful learning and problem-solving tool."--BOOK JACKET. |
