One Excellent Book
on December 12, 2000
If you are new to the area of Fluid Mechanics and need a text to learn the fundamentals, this book is the perfect choice. The text gradually builds on previous material and you almost never get lost reading it. Most equations are derived step by step with detailed explanations of the assumptions made and the mathematical modifications done. The organization of the book is suitable such that one can cover both theoretical and practical aspects of fluids in seperate chapters. I should also mention the wise selection of the example problems. They really help you understand what is going on. Finally, I believe this is an excellent book for any engineer working in the area of fluid mechanics.
