APPLIED FLUID MECHANICS GE
For all fluid mechanics, hydraulics, and related courses in Mechanical, Manufacturing, Chemical, Fluid Power, and Civil Engineering Technology and Engineering programs.
The leading applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics is now in full color, with integrated software, new problems, and extensive new coverage.
Now in full color with an engaging new design, Applied Fluid Mechanics, Seventh Edition, is the fully updated edition of the most popular applications-oriented approach to engineering fluid mechanics. It offers a clear and practical presentation of all basic principles of fluid mechanics (both statics and dynamics), tying theory directly to real devices and systems used in mechanical, chemical, civil, and environmental engineering. The 7th edition offers new real-world example problems and integrates the use of world-renowned PIPE-FLO (R) software for piping system analysis and design. It presents new procedures for problem-solving and design; more realistic and higher quality illustrations; and more coverage of many topics, including hose, plastic pipe, tubing, pumps, viscosity measurement devices, and computational fluid mechanics. Full-color images and color highlighting make charts, graphs, and tables easier to interpret organize narrative material into more manageable “chunks,” and make all of this text’s content easier to study.
Teaching and Learning Experience
This applications-oriented introduction to fluid mechanics has been redesigned and improved to be more engaging, interactive, and pedagogically effective.
Completely redesigned in full color, with additional pedagogical features, all designed to engage today’s students: This edition contains many new full-color images, upgraded to improve realism, consistency, graphic quality, and relevance. New pedagogical features have been added to help students explore ideas more widely and review material more efficiently.
Provides more hands-on practice and real-world applications, including new problems and software: Includes access to the popular PIPE-FLO (R) and Pump-Base (R) software packages, with detailed usage instructions; new real-world example problems; and more supplementary problems
Updated and refined to reflect the latest products, tools, and techniques: Contains updated data and analysis techniques, improved problem solving and design techniques, new content on many topics, and extensive new references.
“Principles of Statistics for Engineers and Scientists” offers the same crystal clear presentation of applied statistics as Bill Navidi’s “Statistics for Engineers and Scientists” text, in a manner especially designed for the needs of a one-semester course that is focused on applications. By presenting ideas in the context of real-world data sets and with plentiful examples of computer output, the book is great for motivating students to understand the importance of statistics in their careers and their lives. The text features a unique approach highlighted by an engaging writing style that explains difficult concepts clearly and the use of contemporary real world data sets to help motivate students and show direct connections to industry and research. While focusing on practical applications of statistics, the text makes extensive use of examples to motivate fundamental concepts and to develop intuition.
About the Author
William Navidi is Professor of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at the Colorado School of Mines. He received the B.A. degree in mathematics from New College, the M.A. in mathematics from Michigan State University, and the Ph.D. in statistics from the University of California at Berkeley. Professor Navidi has authored more than 50 research papers both in statistical theory and in a wide variety of applications including computer networks, epidemiology, molecular biology, chemical engineering, and geophysics.
This edition includes the changes needed to address the trends in the market by rewriting & expanding the coverage of the 2nd law of thermodynamics.
This SI editions has the same content as Bedford’s Engineering Mechanics: Statics, 5e.
John Wiley Sons, Inc. is proud to announce an important new series of textbooks The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering. In response to the growing economic and technological importance of polymers, ceramics, and semi-conductors, many materials science and engineering departments are changing and expanding their curricula. The advent of new courses calls for the development of new textbooks that teach the principles of materials science and engineering as they apply to all the classes of materials. The MIT Series in Materials Science and Engineering is designed to fill the needs of this changing curriculum. Based on the undergraduate curriculum of the MIT Department of Materials Science and Engineering, the series will include textbooks for the core courses in the field as well as texts for courses in specific material classes. The first three textbooks in the series will be: Thermodynamics of Materials, Vol. I, by David Ragone (0-471-30885-4) Thermodynamics of Materials, VoL. II, by David Ragone (0-471-30886-2) Physical Ceramics: Principles for Ceramics Science and Engineering, by Yet-Ming Chiang, Dunbar Birnie III, and W. David Kingery (0-471-59873-9)
About the Author
About the Author David V. Ragone received his S. B., S. M., and Sc.D. degrees in metallurgical engineering from MIT. He taught undergraduate and graduate courses in thermodynamics at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor from 1953 to 1962. From 1962 to 1967, as chairman of the materials department and assistant director of the Hopkins laboratory at the General Atomic Division of General Dynamics, he directed research on materials for advanced, high-temperature, gas-cooled nuclear reactors. He then served as Alcoa Professor of Metallurgy at the Carnegie- Mellon University, where he was also Associate Dean of Urban and Public Affairs. In 1970, he was named dean of the Thayer School at Dartmouth, and returned to the University of Michigan as Dean of Engineering in 1972. In 1980, he was named President of the Case Western University, where he served until 1987. He returned to teaching undergraduate courses in thermodynamics and the physical chemistry of materials at MIT in 1988, and began writing texts shortly thereafter. In addition to his appointment at MIT, David Ragone is a partner in Ampersand Ventures, a firm whose focus is on ventures in specialty materials and chemicals. He has also served as a member of the National Science Board and as a director of more than a dozen public and private companies. His professional society memberships include ASM, AIME, and ACS.
