Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, 7th Edition

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, 7th Edition (EHEP002022) cover image

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics is THE best-selling fluid mechanics text for a reason – it offers comprehensive topical coverage, with varied examples and problems, application of the visual component of fluid mechanics, and a strong focus on effective learning to help students connect theory to the physical world.  The text enables the gradual development of confidence in problem solving.  Each important concept is introduced in easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed. 

Continuing this book's tradition of extensive real-world applications, this latest edition includes new problem types, an increased number of real-world photos, and additional videos to augment the text material and help support visualization skill building and engage users more deeply with the material and concepts.

 When adopted along with the text, WileyPLUS further helps build students’ confidence because it takes the guesswork out of studying by providing students a clear roadmap: what to do, how to do it, if they did it right. With WileyPLUS, students take more initiative, so instructors will have a greater impact.

WileyPLUS includes fluids phenomena and problem-solving videos, automatically graded algorithmic and GO (Guided Online) tutorial problems, multiple choice concept questions, and sample FE exam questions.
