Fluid mechanics, the study of how fluids behave and interact under various forces and in various applied situations whether in the liquid or gaseous state or both is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted text. Revised and updated by Dr. David Dowling,Fluid Mechanics, Fifth Edition is suitable for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. The leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics, Kundu & Cohen's Fluid Mechanics, 5e includes a free copy of the DVD "Multimedia Fluid Mechanics," second edition. With the inclusion of the DVD, students can gain additional insight about fluid flows through nearly 1,000 fluids video clips, can conduct flow simulations in any of more than 20 virtual labs and simulations, and can view dozens of other new interactive demonstrations and animations, thereby enhancing their fluid mechanics learning experience.

Personally I did not find this book to be very helpful. The notation is very weird, the wording of the exercises is often vague and to be frank the previous edition had a lot more... Read morePublished 13 months ago by Michelle
It's clear and easy to understand. It treats a broad range of topics in a comprehensive manner, making it a fine addition.Published 21 months ago by Nick
