PEARSON EDUCATION LIMITED
12 MAY 2011
The sixth edition of this established, popular textbook provides an excellent and comprehensive treatment of fluid mechanics that is concisely written and supported by numerous worked examples. This revision of a classic text presents relevant material for mechanical and civil engineers, as well as energy and environmental services engineers. It recognises the evolution of the subject and provides thorough coverage of both established theory and emerging topics. Fluid Mechanicsis ideal for use throughout a first degree course in all engineering disciplines where a good understanding of the subject is required. New sections on rotodynamic machine interaction, contaminant concentration prediction and water reuse responses to the drought consequences of climate change. Extended website includes enhanced and additional simulations.
