Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Always accurate and accessible

Known for its exceptionally readable approach, Crowe, Elger, and Robertson's ENGINEERING FLUID MECHANICS carefully guides readers from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications.

The Seventh Edition of this student-friendly text fosters a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through lucid physical descriptions, photographs, clear illustrations, and fully worked example problems. More than 1,100 problems, including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems, provide an opportunity to apply fluid mechanics principles. Throughout, the authors have meticulously reviewed all problems, solutions, and text material to ensure accuracy.

Enhancements and revisions to the Seventh Edition

  • Expanded material on the analysis of hydrostatic forces on curved surfaces.
  • New material on the concept of system, control volume, and control surface.
  • Improved physical description f the concept of flow rotation.
  • A simpler approach to the development of the Bernoulli equation.
  • Revised chapter on the momentum equation, featuring force and momentum diagrams to visualize the concepts.
  • Revised coverage of the use of the step-by-step method of dimensional analysis, making the approach considerably easier to understand and utilize.
  • New material on error analysis in flow measurement.
  • Summaries at the end of each chapter
  • 94 new and 310 revised problems (more than 1,100 problems in all).

Format: Hardcover
This text is a great introduction to Fluid Mechanics. The derivations are very easy to follow, and the problems apply to many real life situations. For graduate students, it may be a little to light weight, but for undergrads it provides a broad base of information.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By David Kahler on January 20, 2005
Format: Hardcover
This text was used in a class where I was the teaching assistant. There were numerous complaints from students about how the text was difficult to follow, and in some cases the examples were even incomplete. This was a class for junior engineering students as a first thorough course in fluids, the text was not helpful. As a graduate student I found it to be a good reference of basic concepts (although, it was hard for me to follow some of the examples). It even goes in depth with many concepts. All in all it is a good basic reference, but totally inadequate for beginning instruction.

As a note to instructors, the solution manual is loaded with errors.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jay Mandal on March 29, 2000
Format: Hardcover
The book is easy to read however, it is very hard to solve the problems. The author does not do a very good job showing which equation's are used. In the example problems the author bring's in values which are constant's but does not indicate what the values are and the units. It is a very hard text book to follow. However the derivation of the formulas are done very well.

:

It has a good introduction to Dimensional Analysis and Similitude. The chapter on Computational Fluid Mechanics is a welcome addition in the thrd edition of this book.It also offers a good introduction to turbomachines.The chapter on the "Lift and Drag" of bodies immersed in a fluid is very well written.

Addition of a new chapter on "Hydrodynamics of Bearing Lubrication" will further enhance the popularity of this excellent book.

I received the book quickly and was in great condition. It even had a few solutions posted in the homework sections. Little markings in it at all.
