## Solving Problems in Fluid Mechanics, Volume 1This first volume of two aims to help prepare students of fluid mechanics for their examinations by presenting a clear explanation of theory and application in the form of solutions to typical examination and assignment type questions. Each chapter comprises start-of-chapter learning objectives, a summary of basic theory, end-of-chapter summaries, a range of worked examples, a selection of problems with answers, and assignments to encourage further practice and consolidate understanding. |
