Mechanics of fluids
The new 4th Edition lessens the amount of advanced coverage, and concentrates on the topics covered in typical first courses in Fluid Mechanics, while remaining a rigorous introductory level fluids book with a strong conceptual approach to fluids based on mechanics principles. Students from Mechanical, Civil, Aero, and Engineering Science departments will benefit from this title. Students find Shames, Mechanics of Fluids to be readable while having strong coverage of underlying math and physics principles. Shames' book provides an especially clear link between the basics of fluid flow and advanced courses such compressible flow or viscous fluid flow. It also includes Matlab applications for the first time, giving students a way to link fluid mechanics problem-solving with the most widely used computational & problem modeling tool.
