Publisher Synopsis

"â ¦ presents the application of mathematics to engineering in a very simple manner so that students can understand and follow it very easily. â ¦ The many newly added problems can be used to introduce students to the concept of Design of Experiments that satisfies one of the current ABET Student Outcomes. Use of both units in the main text rather than assigning problems in both units is a great help to the students when they go out to the industries."-Mahesh C. Aggarwal, Ph.D, Gannon University, Erie, Pennsylvania, USA"Well-written and well-illustrated text. Clear derivations and copious applications of the theory are presented. Well selected homework problems and many worked-out examples. Welcome addition to the collection of quality introductory fluid mechanics books."-Eugene F. Brown, Professor Emeritus, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Blacksburg, USA"This book provides a very good and thorough introduction to fluid mechanics at the undergraduate level. This revision offers more examples for the students to learn from as well as numerous homework problems to assign students. The author has a writing style that presents subjects in a very understandable way. The chapter on dimensional analysis is one of the most thorough and clear I have ever read."-Amy Lang, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, USA"â ¦ I can confirm that the fifth edition of the book provides a very good introduction to fluid mechanics fundamentals."-Thanos Megaritis, Brunel University London, UK"The book is very well written, and it provides a very thorough mathematical analysis that can easily be followed by engineering students. Very clear discussions on practical aspects of modeling in fluid flow analysis using non-dimensional parameters are made. The book is highly recommended to engineering students as well as other professionals involved in design and analysis of hydraulic systems."-A. K. Oskouie, Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago, USA Read more...
