Munson, Young and Okiishi's Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics, 8th Edition

Munson, Young and Okiishi

Description

Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanic, 8th Edition offers comprehensive topical coverage, with varied examples and problems, application of visual component of fluid mechanics, and strong focus on effective learning. The text enables the gradual development of confidence in problem solving. The authors have designed their presentation to enable the gradual development of reader 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, the 8th edition includes more Fluid in the News case study boxes in each chapter, new problem types, an increased number of real-world photos, and additional videos to augment the text material and help generate student interest in the topic. Example problems have been updated and numerous new photographs, figures, and graphs have been included. In addition, there are more videos designed to aid and enhance comprehension, support visualization skill building and engage students more deeply with the material and concepts.

New To This Edition

  • Self-Contained  Material that had been removed from the text and provided only on-line has been brought back into the text. Most notable are Section 5.4 on the second law of thermodynamics and useful energy loss and Appendix E containing units conversion factors.
  • Compressible Flow  Chapter 11 on compressible flow has been extensively reorganized and a limited amount of new material added. All have special emphasis on engineering applications of the material. Example solutions employ tabulated compressible flow functions as well as graphs.
  • Appendices  Compressible flow function tables have been added to Appendix D. A  new extensive set of units conversion factors in a useful and compact format appears in Appendix E.
  • Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)  Provides a description of many of the challenges and practices that characterize widely-used CFD codes. The aim is twofold: to show how reasonably complex flows can be computed and to foster a healthy skepticism in the non-specialist. This material is presented in an expanded Appendix A.
