The fourth edition of this text includes the addition of over 500 new problems, divided into categories of applied problems, comprehensive applied problems, design projects, word problems and FE (fundamentals of engineering exam) problems. The book has been given an updated, modern design and includes many useful pedagogical and motivational aids such as a perforated "Key Equations Card," boxed equations, and opening chapter photos. The book is available with or without the EES (Engineering Equation Solver) problems disc which contains examples that demonstrate how to use EES programs that have been developed to solve some of the problems in the book. EES programmes developed for this book are denoted in the text with a disc symbol. The EES engine is available free to those who adopt the text with the problems disk and will be distributed via a copy protected password system on the web.

1. Over 1500 total problems. 500 new problems divided into categories of "regular problems", "applied problems," "comprehensive applied problems," "design projects," "word problems" and "FE (fundamentals of engineering exam) problems." The applied and comprehensive applied problems provide a real-world window into Fluid Mechanics, rather than just the standard "plug and chug" type problems. The design projects enable students to actually apply their knowledge of fluid mechanics in a hands-on format. Certain problems in the text are also identified with a computer disk icon as those that could be solved using the computer and a technical calculation package such as EES or Mathcad. 20% of the problems are in English units; 80% SI.
There are 95 new multiple-choice problems which simulate the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam.
Answers to 640 selected even-numbered problems are now included in text. (back of book)
Perforated and laminated "Key Equations Card" included with text. (after chapter 1)
New sections on "Problem Solving Methodology" and "Engineering Uncertainty" now included in chapter 1.
Chapter opening photo for each chapter. (beginning of each chapter)
Chapter 2 now contains a complete derivation of the formulas for determining floating body stability.
New instruments, such as the fused-quartz bourdon tube, the resonant silicon transducer, and Coriolis mass-flow meters, have been added to the text.
Chapter 7 introduces biological adaptation to flow.
Chapter 8 has an extensive new section on Computational Fluid Dynamics, both viscous and inviscid, steady and unsteady, plus an illustration and critique of commercial CFD codes.
Chapter 9 gives repeated illustrations of how the new equation solvers such as EES are gradually replacing the still-retained compressible flow tables of App. B.
Chapter 10 introduces new, real-world open-channel flow problems and design projects, taken from the author's experience with hydropower projects.
Chapter 11 introduces new material on compressors.
Now available with or without the EES (Engineering Equation Solver) Problems Disk which contains examples that demonstrate how to use EES programs that have been developed to solve some of the problems in the book. EES programs developed for this book are denoted in the text with a disk symbol. The EES engine is available free to those who adopt the text with the problems disk and will be distributed via a copy protected password system on the web. Be sure to give the course coordinator's name and address to account management once you verify the adoption to ensure the school receives the password.
Tips about applying EES are sprinkled in the text.
