Munson's Fundamentals of Fluid Mechanics 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. Each important concept is introduced in easy-to-understand terms before more complicated examples are discussed.

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.
  • Learning Objectives at the beginning of each chapter, and the Chapter Summary, Study Guide and Equation Summary at the end of each chapter, guide the reader in the key knowledge they are to gain from the chapter.
  • Hundreds of photos, illustrations, and videos help students visualize fluid flow, and connect the math and theory to physical real-world applications.
  • The Wide World of Fluids: Short stories that demonstrate some of the latest ways that fluid mechanics affects our lives, many with associated homework problems.
  • Problem-solving methodology in example problems: All of the example problems are outlined and carried out with the problem-solving framework of “Given, Find, Solution, and Comment” to instill in students good problem-solving practices.
  • Homework problems stress the practical application of principles: Problems include simple to complex problems, discussion problems, and problems based on the fluids videos.
