Fluid Mechanics with Applications
For one-semester, sophomore/junior-level courses in Fluid Mechanics. Focusing equally on concepts andproblem-solving techniques, this well-illustrated, easily-accessible introduction to fluid mechanics features unique coverage of real-world, state-of-the-art fluid system applications. Requires a background in algebra, trigonometry, and physics. Calculus is used in a limited number of sections as optional information.
