Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations - whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both - is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Fully revised and updated with the addition of a new chapter on biofluid mechanics, "Fluid Mechanics, Fourth Edition" is suitable for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, "Fluid Mechanics, 4e" guides students from the fundamentals to the analysis and application of fluid mechanics, including compressible flow and such diverse applications as hydraulics and aerodynamics. This title includes: updates to several chapters and sections, including Boundary Layers, Turbulence, Geophysical Fluid Dynamics, Thermodynamics and Compressibility; fully revised and updated chapter on Computational Fluid Dynamics; new chapter on Biofluid Mechanics by Professor Portonovo Ayyaswamy, the Asa Whitney Professor of Dynamical Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania; new Visual Resources appendix that provides a list of fluid mechanics films available for viewing online; additional worked-out examples and end-of-chapter problems; and, updated online Solutions Manual for adopting instructors.

From its genesis, the text has aimed to offer a balanced approach rather than the more narrow coverage of those written for applied mathematicians, or for readers interested exclusively in engineering applications. Even so, the author is cautious about mixing engineering and geophysical fluid dynamics, generally separating them in different chapters. - Book News, June 2004About the Author:
