Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?

  • The New copy of this book will include any supplemental materials advertised. Please check the title of the book to determine if it should include any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.
  • The eBook copy of this book is not guaranteed to include any supplemental materials. Typically, only the book itself is included. This is true even if the title states it includes any access cards, study guides, lab manuals, CDs, etc.


Fluid Mechanics is intended for use in Fluid Mechanics courses found in Civil and Environmental, General Engineering, and Engineering Technology and Industrial Management departments. It is also serves as a suitable reference and introduction to Fluid Mechanics principles.


Fluid Mechanics provides a comprehensive and well-illustrated introduction to the theory and application of Fluid Mechanics. The text presents a commitment to the development of student problem-solving skills and features many of the same pedagogical aids unique to Hibbeler texts.


MasteringEngineering for Fluid Mechanics is a total learning package that is designed to improve results through personalized learning. This innovative online program emulates the instructor’s office–hour environment, guiding students through engineering concepts from Fluid Mechanics with self-paced individualized coaching.


Teaching and Learning Experience

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. It provides:

  • Individualized Coaching: MasteringEngineering provides students with wrong-answer specific feedback and hints as they work through tutorial homework problems.
  • Problem Solving: A large variety of problem types stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, with varying levels of difficulty.
  • Visualization: The photos are designed to help students visualize difficult concepts.
  • Review and Student Support:A thorough end-of-chapter review provides students with a concise reviewing tool.
  • Accuracy Checking:The accuracy of the text and problem solutions has been thoroughly checked by other parties.
  • Alternative Coverage: After covering the basic principles in Chapters 1-6, the remaining chapters may be presented in any sequence, without the loss of continuity.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringEngineering does not come automatically packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MasteringEngineering search for ISBN-10: 0133770001 /ISBN-13: 9780133770001. That package includes ISBN-10: 0132777622 /ISBN-13: 9780132777629 and ISBN-10: 0133820807 /ISBN-13: 9780133820805. MasteringEngineering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.


Author Biography

R.C. Hibbeler graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana with a BS in Civil Engineering (major in Structures) and an MS in Nuclear Engineering. He obtained his PhD in Theoretical and Applied Mechanics from Northwestern University.

Hibbeler’s professional experience includes postdoctoral work in reactor safety and analysis at Argonne National Laboratory, and structural work at Chicago Bridge and Iron, as well as Sargent and Lundy in Tucson. He has practiced engineering in Ohio, New York, and Louisiana.

Hibbeler currently teaches at the University of Louisiana, Lafayette. In the past he has taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana, Youngstown State University, Illinois Institute of Technology, and Union College.
