The eighth edition of Fluid Mechanics offers students a clear and comprehensive presentation of the material that demonstrates the progression from physical concepts to engineering applications. The book helps students to see the practical importance of fluid mechanics fundamentals. The wide variety of topics gives instructors many options for their course and is a useful resource to students long after graduation. The problem-solving approach is presented at the start of the book and carefully integrated in all examples. Students can progress from general examples to those involving design, multiple steps, and computer usage. New To The Eighth Edition – Over 20 new problems per chapter; more than 500 in total New subsection on laminar-flow minorlosses, appropriate for micro- and nano-tube flows; additional discussion of the Kline-Fogelman airfoil, extremely popular now for model aircraft; new supersonic wave photographs added; new subsection on the water-channel compressible flow analogy; new problems assigned to find the oblique wave angle for supercritical water flow past a wedge; an expanded discussion of wind turbines, with examples and problems taken from the author’s own experience. Supplements – the following supplements are related to users of this SI edition. Solutions Manual – The Solutions Manual that accompanies this book offers typeset, one-per-page solutions with detail explanations, to end-of-chapter problems. Powerpoint Slides PowerPoint presentation slides for all chapters in the text are available for use in lectures.
