Designed to provide a rigorous foundation in fluid mechanics for applications in civil, mechanical, chemical, and hydraulic engineering, this book assumes a sophomore-level background in differential calculus, Taylor series, and the elements of vector analysis. Essential topics covered include laminar and turbulent flow, kinematics, inertial and viscous effects, open channel and compressible flows, and flow around immersed bodies.
