Summary

MECHANICS OF FLUIDS presents fluid mechanics so that readers gain an understanding of and an ability to analyze the important phenomena encountered by practicing engineers. The authors succeed in this through the use of several pedagogical tools (Margin Notes, Chapter Outlines, Summaries, and a nomenclature list) that help readers visualize the many difficult-to-understand phenomena of fluid mechanics.
