"Essentials of Fluid Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications" is an abridged version of a more comprehensive text by the same authors, "Fluid Mechanics: Fundamentals and Applications" (McGraw-Hill 2006). Suitable for a one-semester course, this text communicates directly with tomorrow's engineers in a simple yet precise manner. It covers the basic principles and equations of fluids in the context of numerous, diverse real-world engineering examples, and it helps students develop an intuitive understanding of fluid mechanics by emphasizing the physics. An abundance of figures, photographs and supplemental visual aids spark curiosity and reinforce the physics.
