One of the bestselling books in the field, Introduction to Fluid Mechanics continues to provide readers with a balanced and comprehensive approach to mastering critical concepts. The new seventh edition once again incorporates a proven problem-solving methodology that will help them develop an orderly plan to finding the right solution. It starts with basic equations, then clearly states assumptions, and finally, relates results to expected physical behavior. Many of the steps involved in analysis are simplified by using Excel.
Through six editions, Fox & McDonald’s Introduction to Fluid Mechanics has been one of the most widely adopted textbooks in the field. This new eighth edition continues to provide readers with a balanced and comprehensive approach to mastering critical concepts, incorporating a proven problem-solving methodology that helps readers develop an orderly plan to finding the right solution, including relating results to expected physical behavior.
The seven edition features co-author, Philip Pritchard, has introduced new material to motivate readers’ interest in fluid mechanics through exciting applications, such as case studies relating to Energy and the Environment ISSUES, and new videos demonstrating fluid mechanics principles.
