Product Description:

Fluid Mechanics, understanding and applying the principles of how motions and forces act upon fluids such as gases and liquids, is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. New to this third edition are expanded coverage of such important topics as surface boundary interfaces, improved discussions of such physical and mathematical laws as the Law of Biot and Savart and the Euler Momentum Integral. A very important new section on Computational Fluid Dynamics has been added for the very first time to this edition. Expanded and improved end-of-chapter problems will facilitate the teaching experience for students and instrutors alike. This book remains one of the most comprehensive and useful texts on fluid mechanics available today, with applications going from engineering to geophysics, and beyond to biology and general science.

* Ample, useful end-of-chapter problems.
* Excellent Coverage of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
* Coverage of Turbulent Flows.
* Solutions Manual available.


Summary: An excellent introduction in Fluid Mechanics
Rating: 5

One of the best introduction books in this
field. This new edition has a chapter on
Biofluid Mechanics. Over all, it is interesting
and fun to read.

Summary: It has never arrived - I want at least my money back
Rating: 1

That's the very worst shop I ever made using the internet. The book was supposed to arrive in December 26, and it has never arrived. We are now more than 15 days in delay, and there is not even a place to complain about that in the very bureacratic and unefficient Amazon web page. Worse than that, the seller is exactly Amazon.com. I really need the book, and a way to at least let amazon know that the book has NOT arrived so far.

Summary: Excellent Background Material
Rating: 4

This is an excellent work if you need background information about fluid mechanics, it explains basic notions such as the continuity equation in a mathematically rigorous, but nevertheless easily understandable way.
However, if you are primarily in need of a resource for computational methods this is definitely not what you are looking for. In such a case I would for instance recommend the -works of Zienkievicz and Taylor, if you are interested in FEM.

Summary: Not a great choice for students
Rating: 2

This book is not a great resource for a student. There are few examples, and the exercises at the end of each chapter are short and not very diverse. The exercises also have no solutions, not a big deal but the text has few examples.

If you just need a reference this book is ok, but please don't teach from it!

Summary: Good book
Rating: 5

This is a good book to begin learning the fundamentals of fluid mechanics in a science point of view.
