Written by dedicated educators who are also real-life engineers with a passion for the discipline, Engineering Fluid Mechanics, 11th Edition, carefully guides students from fundamental fluid mechanics concepts to real-world engineering applications. The Eleventh Edition and its accompanying resources deliver a powerful learning solution that helps students develop a strong conceptual understanding of fluid flow phenomena through clear physical descriptions, relevant and engaging photographs, illustrations, and a variety of fully worked example problems. Including a wealth of problems-- including open-ended design problems and computer-oriented problems--this text offers ample opportunities for students to apply fluid mechanics principles as they build knowledge in a logical way and enjoy the journey of discovery.

The end-of-chapter problems include approximately 30% new or revised problems. In addition, the authors have added a wide variety of new problems that can be solved in a short time.

Critical Thinking (CT) is introduced in Chapter 1. When students apply Critical Thinking, they become better engineers.

Learning Outcomes are organized into categories. The grouping of categories gives increased clarity to what’s most important.

New material added to Chapter 1 on the topic of force, mass, weight, Newton’s law of universal gravitation, density and specific weight.

Chapter 2 has a new section on stress, how to relate stress and force, and on common forces.
Rationale. Each section describes how the concepts to be covered are relevant so students can connect their learning to what is important to them.

Visual Approach. Numerous sketches and photographs help students learn more effectively, particularly those who are visual learners.

Seminal Equations. Emphasizes technical derivations so that students can learn to do the derivations on their own, increasing their levels of knowledge.

Example Problems. Every chapter has many example problems to demonstrate how the knowledge is used in context. Each example is worked out in detail.
