Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics by G S Sawhney
The book presents an exhaustive coverage of the theory, definitions, formulae and examples which are well supported by plenty of diagrams and problems in order to make the underlying principles more comprehensive.
Audience of the Book :
|Written with the second-year engineering students of undergraduate level in mind, this well set out textbook explains the fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics. Written in question-answer form, the book is precise and easy to understand.|
The main features of the book are as follows:
1.Explains the principles and concepts of fluid mechanics in a comprehensive manner, keeping the derivation of fundamental relations in a simple form.
2.Each chapter is preceded with the list of keywords and topics, followed by an introduction, and the theory per se in question-answer format.
3.Contains about 1000 solved questions, many from past examinations of universities and other exams.
4.Profusely illustrated with diagrams to explain the difficult concepts effectively.
