9780071199117: Fluid Mechanics

The fifth edition of Fluid Mechanics continues the tradition of precision, accuracy, accessibility, and strong conceptual presentation. This new edition retains its basic organization. The three approaches integral, differential, and dimensional analysis are treated separately, providing the conceptual foundation of fluid mechanics. Chapters on ducts, immersed bodies, potential flow, compressible flow, open channels, and turbomachinery show the major applications of the field.

The new edition includes a systematic problem solving methodology for readers to follow. New chapter examples and approximately 250 new chapter problems have been added.. The EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software is included, free to users, as a means to model and solve problems on the computer. A new appendix offers a brief review of mathematical tools.

From the Publisher:

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.
