FLUID MECHANICS FOR ENGINEERS IN SI UNITS

 FLUID MECHANICS  FOR ENGINEERS IN SI UNITS

FLUID MECHANICS  FOR ENGINEERS IN SI UNITS



Beginning with my formative years as a graduate student at Caltech and Georgia Tech, I have applied fluid mechanics in the context of many engineering disciplines. Also, having taken all of the graduate-level fluid mechanics courses in mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, civil engineering, and geophysics, and having taught fluid mechanics for more than 30 years, I felt well qualified and motivated to author a fluid mechanics textbook for engineering students.

The unique features of this textbook are that it: (1) focuses on the basic principles of fluid mechanics that engineering students are likely to apply in their subsequent required undergraduate coursework, (2) presents the material in a rigorous fashion, and (3) provides many quantitative examples and illustrations of fluid mechanics applications.

Students in all engineering disciplines where fluid mechanics is a core course should find this textbook stimulating and useful. In some chapters, the nature of the material necessitates a bias towards practical applications in certain engineering disciplines, and the disciplinary area of the author also contributes to the selection and presentation of practical examples throughout the text. In this latter respect, practical examples related to civil engineering applications are particularly prevalent. To help students learn the material, interactive instruction, tutoring, and practice questions on selected topics are provided via Pearson Mastering Engineering.

The content of a first course in fluid mechanics. This is a textbook for a first course in fluid mechanics taken by engineering students. The prerequisites for a course using this textbook are courses in calculus through differential equations, and a course in engineering statics. Additional preparatory coursework in rigid-body dynamics and thermodynamics are useful, but not essential. The content of a first course in fluid mechanics for engineers depends on the the curricula of the students taking the course and the interests of the instructor.
