  • Fluid Mechanics by JustAsk®—a web-based interactive student tutorial that is specific to the text and provides step-by-step solutions and interactive animations to bring key concepts to life. Fluid Mechanics by JustAsk® is designed for student use, and is also an effective lecture tool to demonstrate key concepts.

  • Chapters 4 and 5 have been reorganized to provide a smoother transition from the principles of flow acceleration and the Bernoulli equation, to the control volume and continuity equations. Chapter 4 now introduces flow patterns, flow acceleration and the Bernoulli equation. Chapter 5 introduces the control volume concept and applies it to the continuity equation.

  • New animations have been added to illustrate pathline, streakline, and streamline concepts, rotationality, separation, and cavitation.

  • Updated Solutions Manual for Instructors: updated to provide detailed step-by-step solutions to the problems with explanatory remarks, enabling the user to easily follow the approach and solution details.

  • Error-free. The authors have taken great pains to check the accuracy of all calculations throughout the text.

  • Readability. This text has established a reputation for clarity and the ease with which students can grasp the material with minimal input from the instructor.

  • Supporting Illustrations further support and facilitate student comprehension.

  • Basic concepts are explained with physical arguments. A physical/visual approach aids the student in gaining an intuitive understanding of the principles of fluid dynamics.

  • Numerous worked-out examples in the text. Students can use the examples as a basis for solving problems.

  • Design problems. Applying theoretical principles in practical designs helps develop the student's engineering creativity.

  • Appropriate coverage of mathematics: The text’s treatment of mathematics is consistent with the capability of the typical undergraduate student. For example, the concept of irrotationality and the Bernoulli equation in irrotational flow is presented with a minimum use of partial differential equations. This concept is made more visual and comprehensible to the student. More advanced mathematical formulations are available in the text for use at the instructor’s discretion.
