This multi-media product is intended to provide an interactive tool for teaching undergraduate fluid mechanics for students in engineering and the basic sciences. Funded by the National Science Foundation and written and prepared by an international group of experts, this CD-ROM includes experiments that demonstrate fluid mechanical phenomena, animations of important principles and concepts, virtual laboratories in which students acquire data from the images, interactive computational exercises in which parameters may be varied, and other descriptive and illuminating material on applications. The coverage is at the level of the Navier-Stokes Equations, but much of the material is accessible to lower level courses as well. The material is conveyed in an attractive and interactive way, with descriptive and developmental text accompanying all the videos and animations. The product is intended to complement any of the standard text books and uses notation and definitions that are standardized to the maximum extent possible. The material may be accessed randomly through a hyperlinked text, a search engine, a video library, and a glossary of terms.

'Homsy and his colleagues have now provided us with a new and powerful teaching aid ... This CD is an ambitious project, and, in my view, it has been accomplished with remarkable success ... I have no doubt that this CD-ROM should be regarded as a 'set text' for viscous fluid mechanics courses at the undergraduate or starting graduate levels.' J. M. Rallison, Journal of Fluid Mechanics
'It is impossible to do justice in a short review to the range of video clips available ... A student could learn a lot from browsing through the material on his or her own PC ... Overall I liked the CD very much indeed, and at the price it represents excellent value. It should be snapped up immediately by university lecturers, students and school Physics departments.' Richard Bridges, Mathematical Gazette
'... a superb rendition of some of the most important concepts in fluid mechanics, including an excellent library of flow visualization pictures ... the CD is very moderately priced ... This reviewer estimate the ratio (educational value to cost) to be (almost) infinite ... this reviewer highly recommends the CD to both instructors as well as students ... Multi-Media Fluid Mechanics is an excellent study-companion ... it is also a bargain.' T. F. Balsa, Applied Mechanical Review
'... a very useful addition to standard fluid mechanics courses for undergraduate students.' Oleg Titow, Zentralblatt für Mathematik
