The fifth edition of FLUID MECHANICS continues the tradition of precision, accuracy, accessibility and strong conceptual presentation. The author balances three separate approaches¿integral, differential and experimental¿to provide a foundation for fluid mechanics concepts and applications. Chapter 1 now provides a more student-accessible introduction to the field. After covering the basics in the first six chapters, the text moves on to applications, with chapters on ducts, immersed bodies, potential flow, compressible flow, open channel flow and turbomachinery. New material on CFD is included in Chapter 7 to give students a sense of its importance in modern engineering practice. The fifth edition includes a new problem-solving methodology, introduced at the beginning of the book and used consistently in worked-out examples. 1,650 chapter problems are now included, organized into several problem types. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage. Word problems are included to build readers’ conceptual understanding of the subject, and FE Exam problems (in multiple-choice format) are included. EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software is included so that students can effectively use the computer to model, solve and modify typical fluid mechanics problems. A CD ROM containing EES is free with every book, and Appendix E describes its use and application to fluid mechanics. A limited version of EES, that does not expire, is included on the CD ROM; users of the book can also download and distribute the full Academic Version of EES, which is renewed annually with a new username and password. In addition to the bound-in CD ROM, a full Book Website is available for students and instructors. This contains an electronic Student Study Guide; interactive FE Exam questions; links to professional websites; PowerPoint slides of book figures; and a link to the EES website. A printed Solutions Manual is also available to adopters of the fifth edition.

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.
