Key Features

    • 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

    While in college, David R. Dowling held summer positions at Hughes Aircraft Co. and the Los Angeles Air Force Station. He completed his doctorate in 1988 at Graduate Aeronautical Laboratories of the California Institute of Technology and moved north to Seattle to accomodate his wife's career in medicine. While there, he worked for a year in the laser technology group at Boeing Aerospace, and then for almost three years as a post-doc at the Applied Physics Laboratory of the University of Washington. In 1992, he accepted a faculty position at the University of Michigan. Prof. Dowling is currently conducting research in acoustics and fluid mechanics. He is a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America, a member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and a member of the American Physical Society. He is a US citizen. Positions at the University of Michigan : Professor, Sept 2005 to Present Associate Professor, Sept 1999 thru August 2005 Assistant Professor, Sept 1992 thru August 1999 Visiting Assistant Professor, July 1992 thru August 1992
