Engineering Fluid Mechanics is an undergraduate textbook suitable for students in all areas of engineering who are required to take a fluid mechanics module. The material presented will not only be of interest to both mechanical and civil engineers, but also contain applications of interest to chemical and aeronautical engineers and naval architects. The text keeps the level of mathematics to an elementary level for ease of use. Its primary goal is to present the student with the fluid mechanics material normally used in industry by an engineer with undergraduate training. Applications are pointed out extensively throughout the text and worked examples underline how the theory is applied. The author covers areas such as non-Newtonian fluids, Euler and Navier-Stokes equations, the determination of gap spacing in lubrication, compressible flow in liquids, separation points in boundary layer flows and relates the history of fluid mechanics. Every student on undergraduate engineering courses must cover fluid mechanics at some point in their course, so this textbook will be essential reading on most courses in engineering. Used in conjunction with the solutions manual this is THE key book in the field for both lecturers and students.
