About The Book Fluid Mechanics

Book Summary:

The third edition of this easy-to-understand text continues to provide students with a sound understanding of the fundamental concepts of various physical phenomena of science of fluid mechanics. It adds a new chapter (Vortex Theory) which presents a vivid interpretation of vortex motions that are of fundamental importance in aerodynamics and in the performance of many other engineering devices. It elaborately explains the dynamics of vortex motion with the help of Helmholtz's theorems and provides illustrations of how the manifestations of Helmholtz's theorems can be observed in daily life.

Several new problems along with answers are added at the end of Chapter 4 on Boundary Layer.

The book is suitable for a one-semester course in fluid mechanics for undergraduate students of mechanical, aerospace, civil and chemical engineering students.

A Solutions Manual containing solutions to end-of-chapter problems is available for use by instructors.
