Book Description:
Fluid Mechanics is an essential subject in the study of the behaviour of fluids in motion and rest. Whether a house hold application such as the mains water supply, the natural gas supply or industrial such as the design of the body of an automotive car, airplane, train or the provision of electricity from a hydropower plant.
