Book Description

February 2, 2010 0077422414 978-0077422417 7
The seventh edition of White’s Fluid Mechanics offers students a clear and comprehensive presentation of the material that demonstrates the progression from physical concepts to engineering applications and helps students quickly see the practical importance of fluid mechanics fundamentals. The wide variety of topics gives instructors many options for their course and is a useful resource to students long after graduation.

The book’s unique problem-solving approach is presented at the start of the book and carefully integrated in all examples. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage.

4.0 out of 5 stars Overall Solid Textbook December 15, 2011
By Y. Zhu
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Overall, this is a solid book for fluid mechanics. I just used it for my first semester fluids class, and both my friends and I enjoyed it! It offers fairly clear explanations, excellent example problems, and is interesting, concise, and offers a lot of clearly illustrated figures, as well as a lot of excellent problems at the end of the chapters. So, why the 4 stars? Well, here are the problems with the book:

- Many of the solutions at the end of the book are wrong... which is very frustrating since this is the 7th printing of this textbook.
- The book skips a lot of steps sometimes (especially during the Navier-Stokes equations section, which is very frustrating for someone first learning the subject). In general, this book assumes you have a very strong math background (i.e. you can instantly recognize and solve diff. eqs, double/triple integrals)
- Not enough examples - the examples White does go through are very basic compared to the problems at the end of the chapters. However, this can be easily fixed by searching for additional practice problems online.

All in all, this is a solid book.. it is overall very readable and interesting, assuming you have a strong math background. Just be familiar with some basic first order diff eqs, some linear algebra, and multivariable and you should be fine!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Solid Text for Fluid Mechanics May 21, 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used this text book for my college's Fluids I and Fluids II courses.

The text wasn't used as heavily in Fluids I, but in Fluids II, this text was our complete source of equations and overall explanation.

The text explains the material well, as well as covering much of the content in an example or two. The homework problems are very difficult, but have the answers to all of the even ones so that you can check yourself as you progress. The problems will become harder and more complex as you get through them, but the concepts will become clearer as you solve more and more of the problems.

The tables and charts are detailed and give a lot of useful information for solving just about everything in the text.

The main disadvantage is that there are equations in the compressible flow portion of the text that were not included because the author expects the CD included to be used to compute the values necessary.

Other than that, this is a solid text book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Horrible Book to learn from! January 1, 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I understand this course is hard in general, however this book was no help whatsoever. Book is very bad at explaining the topics unless you're good in the subject. The book tends to skip steps in the solutions, and most of them are simple in comparison to the assignment problems. The only thing good about this book is they give out a lot of work problems at the end of each chapter.

pros: lots of work problems
cons: hard to read, skips steps in solutions

1.0 out of 5 stars Why bother. May 17, 2014
By zapzap
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After 4 years of college, I should know better than to buy text books now. All of them are horribly written (this one is no exception). The examples aren't plentiful enough to help you learn. You're better off just having an equation sheet with all the equations in the book.

I had the Kindle version…can't copy/print pages when you need a physical book page. Also it would have probably have helped had my professor not changed his mind about letting us use e-books on the exams half way through the semester.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good College Coursebook October 6, 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good explanations and examples. Many examples are presented in the text some of which can be difficult to follow. Tough subject, but book makes it easier. Solutions are readily found online which allows for infinite practice problems.

Not sure how useful this would be after graduation...I would recommend renting unless you plan going into some fluid related field.

2.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst textbooks i've used. August 10, 2013
By J. Hinz
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This was a required book for my fluid mechanics class. I found it hard to follow and generally unorganized and off the point. Very difficult to learn from. I would recommend ignoring your teachers when they say it's required and buy a better book instead.
