- New to this edition:
- Updated Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) chapter for up to date terminology, and added new sample codes, examples, and exercises
- Updated Geophysical Fluid Dynamics (GFD) chapter has been reorganized so that various simplified forms of the equations of motion are readily determined from a common foundation. Plus, examples, exercises, and new material have been added.
- Notations have been revised
- Addition of new topics, examples, and exercises throughout the book.
- Some of the biofluid mechanics coverage has been integrated into appropriate chapters, and the separate chapter on biofluid mechanics has been moved to the companion website
Revised and updated by Dr. David Dowling, Fluid Mechanics is suitable for both a first or second course in fluid mechanics at the graduate or advanced undergraduate level. This leading advanced general text on fluid mechanics presents content in accessible language without sacrificing rigor, and includes such diverse applications as aerodynamics, geophysical fluid dynamics, and current coverage of computational fluid dynamics.
Senior undergraduate/graduate students in mechanical, civil, aerospace, chemical and biomedical engineering; Senior undergraduate/graduate students in physics, chemistry, meteorology, geophysics, and applied mathematics
