Product Description:

Retaining the features that made previous editions perennial favorites, Fundamental Mechanics of Fluids, Third Edition illustrates basic equations and strategies used to analyze fluid dynamics, mechanisms, and behavior, and offers solutions to fluid flow dilemmas encountered in common engineering applications. The new edition contains completely reworked line drawings, revised problems, and extended end-of-chapter questions for clarification and expansion of key concepts. Includes appendices summarizing vectors, tensors, complex variables, and governing equations in common coordinate systems Comprehensive in scope and breadth, the Third Edition of Fundamental Mechanics of Fluids discusses: Continuity, mass, momentum, and energy One-, two-, and three-dimensional flows Low Reynolds number solutions Buoyancy-driven flows Boundary layer theory Flow measurement Surface waves Shock waves

Summary: Great Text
Rating: 5

This book is perfect for a graduate level fluid mechanics text book. It covers both inviscid and viscous flow. Currie proves the equations with a great level of accuracy. This book is an ideal companion to study for a qualifying exam. This is probably the most thorough graduate level text on fluid mechanics. Currie takes the time to prove everything very accurately.
