Fluid Mechanics – Victor Streeter – 9th Edition


The ninth edition of this most acclaimed includes heat and mass transport coverage and presents problem in Microsoft Excel. The useful division of the book into two parts, the first on and the second on , helps learner grasp and correlate the theory and applications in most systematic way.

In the revision of this very successful text, many changes have been made in scope, , and required prerequisite skills. The authors have increased the scope of the book to include heat and mass transport. BASIC programs have been removed and complex problem solutions are now presented in Microsoft Excel. There is also a new website that will contain substantial information on , principal files, and tutorials on the use of MatLab and Mathematica.
