From the Back Cover:

A DEDUCTIVE APPROACH TO FLUID MECHANICS

By following a concise thematic organization, Principles of Fluid Mechanics covers the basic theory, physics, and applications of fluid flow from a general viewpoint that makes it easy for students to follow and understand.

  • Introduces fluid mechanic concepts using the universality—and simplicity—of the conservation laws
  • Covers the material in a deductive manner by following a systematic, step-by-step approach
  • Reinforces the discussion and concepts through numerous example problems
  • Stresses the combined use of mathematical analysis and experimental and computer modeling in solving problems
  • Promotes an overall educational approach required by current engineering problems that are open-ended and multidisciplinary in nature
