Fluid Mechanics, 2nd edition by Leslie A. White
9780070696730 The fifth edition of "Fluid Mechanics" continues the tradition of precision, accuracy, accessibility and strong conceptual presentation. The author balances three separate approaches - integral, differential and experimental - to provide a foundation for fluid mechanics concepts and applications. Chapter 1 now provides a more student-accessible introduction to the field. After covering the basics in the first six chapters, the text moves on to applications, with chapters on ducts, immersed bodies, potential flow, compressible flow, open channel flow and turbomachinery. New material on CFD is included in Chapter 7 to give students a sense of its importance in modern engineering practice. The fifth edition includes a new problem-solving methodology, introduced at the beginning of the book and used consistently in worked-out examples. 1,650 chapter problems are now included, organized into several problem types. Students can progress from general ones to those involving design, multiple steps and computer usage. Word problems are included to build readers' conceptual understanding of the subject, and FE Exam problems (in multiple-choice format) are included. EES (Engineering Equation Solver) software is included so that students can effectively use the computer to model, solve and modify typical fluid mechanics problems. A CD-ROM containing EES is free with every book, and Appendix E describes its use and application to fluid mechanics. A limited version of EES, that does not expire, is included on the CD-ROM; users of the book can also download and distribute the full Academic Version of EES, which is renewed annually with a new username and password. In addition to the bound-in CD-ROM, a full book website is available for students and instructors. This contains: an electronic Student Study Guide; interactive FE Exam questions; links to professional websites; PowerPoint slides of book figures; and a link to the EES website.
