Book Description:

Fluid Mechanics book by the authors Pijush K. Kundu, Ira M. Cohen gives understanding and applying the principles of how motions and forces act upon fluids such as gases and liquids, is introduced and comprehensively covered in this widely adopted book. This book expanded coverage of important topics as surface boundary interfaces, improved discussions of such physical and mathematical laws as the Law of Biot and Savart and the Euler Momentum Integral. A very important new section on Computational Fluid Dynamics has been added for the very first time to this edition. Expanded and improved end-of-chapter problems will facilitate the teaching experience for students and instructors alike. This fluid mechanics eBook remains one of the most comprehensive and useful texts on fluid mechanics available today, with applications going from engineering to geophysics and beyond to biology and general science.

- Ample, useful end-of-chapter problems.
- Excellent Coverage of Computational Fluid Dynamics.
- Coverage of Turbulent Flows.
- Solutions Manual available.
