Introduction to Fluid Mechanics
This introductory text emphasizes the physical concepts of fluid mechanics and methods of analysis, beginning from first principles. In helping readers develop a more orderly approach to problem solving, the book starts from basic equations, states all assumptions clearly, and relates results to expected physical behavior with the aid of 103 example problems. The third edition features the use of SI units in approximately 70% of the more than 1,100 problems, 500 of which are new.
