Excellent Reference for Fluid Mechanics Analysis and Design
on September 23, 2015
Excellent reference for fluid mechanics analysis and design. In my 44 years of mechanical engineering, this is the best source of fundamental concepts that we frequently forget or don't quite achieve the necessary understanding. This book contains 11 chapters with the 12th chapter on turbo machines in the EBooks. The chapter on control volumes is the most comprehensive I have seen and has great clarity. The authors make good use of graphics to explain concepts that are not superfluous illustrations to fill the pages. The additional information on the accompanying CD augments the book. The PDF files with the hand written solutions for some of the review problems are excellent. There is no section that saves important concepts to the problems that a reader has to sort out (and usually does not). The examples cover practical design and analysis rather than useless theoretical proofs. Proofs are included, but in a practical format.
