 Case Studies in Energy and the Environment: A new case study begins each chapter, providing a survey of the most interesting and novel applications of fluid mechanics for generating increasing amounts of the world s energy from renewable sources.
 Demonstration Videos: The classic NCFMF video references from the previous edition have all been retained and supplemented with new videos from a variety of sources. The videos provide visual aids for many of the concepts covered in the text, and are available on the student and instructor sections of the book website.
 CFD: The section on basic concepts of computational fluid dynamics in Chapter 5 now includes material on using the spreadsheet for numerical analysis of simple 1D and 2D flows; it includes an introduction to the Euler method.
 Many Restructured and Updated Chapters: Including those chapters relating to Fluid Machinery, OpenChannel Flow, and Compressible Flow.
 New Homework Problems: Over 500 of the roughly 1700 problems are new or modified for this edition, some created by a panel of instructors and subject matter experts. Endofchapter homework problems are now grouped and labeled according to text sections.
 This book sets the benchmark for undergraduate textbooks in terms of its comprehensive treatment of all the main areas of fluid mechanics, as well as its level of presentation.
 Proven, consistent problemsolving methodology: A consistent problem methodology is demonstrated in every example, demonstrating best practices for students.
 Over 100 detailed example problems illustrate important fluid mechanics concepts and incorporate problemsolving techniques that allow students to see the advantages of using a systematic procedure.
 More than 1,700 endofchapter problems with varying degrees of difficulty give instructors many options when creating assignments.
 Integration with Excel: The problemsolving approach is integrated with Excel so instructors can focus more class time on fundamental concepts. Instructors can also use the 51 Example Excel workbooks to present a variety of fluid mechanics phenomena, especially the effects produced when varying input parameters.
 Extensive explanations of theoretical derivations give instructors the choice to either review theory in class or assign it as homework so that lecture time can be more flexible.
