For Fluid Mechanics courses found in Civil and Environmental, General Engineering, and Engineering Technology and Industrial Management departments.
Fluid Mechanics is intended to provide a comprehensive guide to a full understanding of the theory and many applications of fluid mechanics. The text features many of the hallmark pedagogical aids unique to Hibbeler texts, including its student-friendly, clear organisation. The text supports the development of student problem-solving skills through a large variety of problems, representing a broad range of engineering disciplines that stress practical, realistic situations encountered in professional practice, and provide varying levels of difficulty. The text offers flexibility in that basic principles are covered in chapters 1-6, and the remaining chapters can be covered in any sequence without the loss of continuity.
Updates to the 2nd Edition result from comments and suggestions from colleagues, reviewers in the teaching profession, and many of the author’s students, and include expanded topic coverage and new Example and Fundamental Problems intended to further students’ understanding of the theory and its applications.
