Summary

With the help of additional features, Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics helps mechanical and civil engineers connect the theory to the physical world. This is accomplished through more photos throughout the chapters that show fluid phenomena, new Fluids In the News articles, conceptual questions, and new problem types. Learning objectives are now included for each chapter. Examples that walk the reader step-by-step through the problem-solving methodology are presented. Life-long Learning problems have also been added that help mechanical and civil engineers think critically about a current topic and determine how it relates to problems in the book.
