* This text is well regarded as an undergraduate textbook for its comprehensive treatment of all the main areas of fluid mechanics, as well as its level of presentation. * Provides a proven, consistent problem-solving methodology: A consistent problem methodology is demonstrated in every example, demonstrating best practices for students. * Includes over 100 detailed example problems illustrate important fluid mechanics concepts and incorporate problem-solving techniques that allow students to see the advantages of using a systematic procedure. * More than 1,700 end-of-chapter problems with varying degrees of difficulty give instructors many options when creating assignments. * Integration with Excel(R): The problem-solving approach is integrated with Excel so instructors can focus more class time on fundamental concepts. 51 Example Excel(R) workbooks are available to present a variety of fluid mechanics phenomena, especially the effects produced when varying input parameters.
*CFD: The section on basic concepts of computational fluid dynamics in Chapter 5 now includes material on using the spreadsheet for numerical analysis of simple 1D and 2D flows and includes an introduction to the Euler method. * Extensive explanations of theoretical derivations give instructors the choice to either review theory in class or assign it as homework so that lecture time can be more flexible.
